International Youth Livestock Supreme Championship and Scholarships 2012
Last Updated February 6, 2012
The Calgary Stampede and Olds Agricultural Society are pleased to announce an innovative partnership that will result in a fresh and exciting new direction for the popular International Youth Livestock Show.
This year, under the new partnership and with the support of Alberta 4-H and Alberta Junior Beef Breed Associations, a much larger, intense and integrated competition will take place at Olds Agricultural Society from July 7 to 13, with the winners in several categories moving on to a Supreme Championship Final at the Calgary Stampede on Saturday, July 14. Over 250 competitors from across western Canada are expected to participate in this collaborative programming between Calgary Stampede and Olds Agricultural Society.
Young enthusiasts demonstrate their stewardship skills in sheep, dairy cattle, heavy horse or beef species classes and will compete this year for $50,000 in scholarship money and prizes.
“Agriculture and youth programs are fundamental to preserving and promoting western heritage and values,” says David Sibbald, Calgary Stampede board director, who has been very involved in the redevelopment of the program. “The Stampede takes a serious role in showcasing the agriculture industry.”
