The Ontario Dairy Youth Award applications are due March 15th.
This award was initiated in 1980 by the Ontario Holstein Spring Show Committee and is designed to recognize young people (ages 25-35) who are actively involved in the operation of a dairy farm, have shown leadership abilities and have made a contribution to their community and their breed.
The four district winners receive an all expenses paid trip to the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin, in October.
The Award is funded by the Ontario Dairy Youth Trust Fund and the Ontario Holstein Branch. Application forms are available from your regional Holstein Rep or from the Branch Office.
One winner is to be selected from each County Holstein Club by March 15. County Winners are then interviewed by the District Selection Committee and one award will be presented within each district by April 1.
The District Selection is decided through the application (20%) and the personal interview (80%).
Application Deadline: March 15th, 2017
