YCJLS to host Creative Arts Contest in January
The Young County AgriLife Extension office will be accepting works for their Creative Arts Contest in January as a part of the Young County Junior Livestock Show and Fair. The contest is open to youth and adults that are Young County residents.
The contest has five age categories which are clover (2nd grade and below), junior (3rd-5th grade), intermediate (6ht-8th grade), senior (9th-12th grade) and adult (18-plus years of age). Participation from 4-H, FCCLA and FFA is encouraged, but not required for the contest. The extension office said getting the word out early helps in planning the event.
“We are always excited to see our Creative Arts Contest grow and in efforts to do so we are constantly evaluating the contest rules, division, classes, etc. to see where we can expand our contest in an effort to meet the interest of locals in our community.” Young County Extension Agent Penny Berend wrote in an email.
All projects submitted to the contest must be in place by 10 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 12, 2021, with judging following at 1:30 p.m. the same day along with the Ag Mechanics Contest. Entries will be accepted at the Young County Arena beginning Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2021 between 5-7 p.m. and then again on Thursday, Jan. 14, 2021 between 8-10 a.m.
