2014 Virginia Beef Ambassador Contest

Virginia Beef Industry Council and Rockingham County Extension are proud to bring you the 2014 Virginia Beef Ambassador Contest.

This year the contest will be held at the Virginia Cattlemen's Convention (formerly Beef Expo) in Harrisonburg, VA on Friday, March 28th, 2014.  This contest is open to ALL interested youth ages 12-20.

Participants are not required to have a background in agriculture or own beef cattle.  The purpose of the project is to gain knowledge of the beef industry and to provide an opportunity for youth to educate consumers and other youth about beef nutrition, food safety, and stewardship practices of the beef industry through promotion, education, media, and online.

The top junior and senior will have a chance to compete in Denver, CO.  The top three seniors and top junior will have the opportunity to serve on the state beef ambassador team!
