Youth Challenge Series – Report:

2015 Youth Challenge Series

 

2014 went by like a flash and was our greatest years yet for the Youth Challenge! We had the most participants, the most support, the most growth in our youth, and the most attended youth awards celebration yet! The Youth Challenge show committee is dedicated to see our youth expand their knowledge, responsibility, stewardship and pride for the goat industry. These kids are the future of our goat industry in Michigan.

This coming year there have been some changes to our rules to keep us moving forward and building the momentum of the Youth Challenge. Our largest change is that the point will no longer be calculated on the top five shows. For the years past this has created a large amount of work and anxiety for the show committee because the formula for points was very easy to make mistakes in. So the points will be straight forward and easy to calculate. The points at the end of the season will still be audited and review for accuracy but it will be much easier to follow the formula. The rules are posted on the mbga website www.michiganboergoat.org

The season end awards celebration was a blast to have to kids involved in activities and interacting with each other! This year we are going to be adding a knowledge portion to the challenge so look for that information at the shows so that you can participate in that for awards at the end of the season!

As always we have to send a huge thank you to our Sponsors! We could not do this for our Michigan youth with out you! We are continually working on making more opportunities for the youth. If you have any input for what you would like to see us do for the youth in the future please contact one of the show committee members.
