YOUTH PROFICIENCY AWARD OVERVIEW 04/12/18 11:03:45 AM|
Hard-working 4-H and FFA exhibitors enjoy many benefits of taking part in their local, state and national shows. They learn irreplaceable life lessons, make memories and friendships that will last a lifetime and of course, earn those coveted blue and purple ribbons.
CP Feeds and Country Visions Cooperative have joined together to offer the Youth Proficiency Award Program as an additional way to recognize the time and effort 4-H and FFA members put into preparing their animals. This program hopes to encourage students to be involved in agriculture now and stay involved into their adult lives.
The Youth Proficiency Award Program is in the 17th year, the program reached 75 youth in seven counties in eastern Wisconsin. This award helps to alleviate the financial burden of exhibiting an animal.
Award winners have exhibited at any level, from county fairs to national shows, and have received a variety of honors from class winners to supreme champions. In addition, CP Feeds and Country Visions Co-op will donate gift items to each participant no matter how they place in their respective shows.
