Auction of Junior Champions
Of the thousands of junior market animals that compete at the National Western Stock Show each year, only 90 of the very best are at the exciting Auction of Junior Livestock Champions. This event will be held on January 25, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. in the Beef Palace Auction Arena.
The auction is the final market place for the ribbon-winning steers, lambs, hogs and goats that were raised by junior exhibitors, 4-H and FFA youngsters ranging in age from 9 to 18.
We are happy to say that winning bids have reached as high as $110,500! The auction of Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion animals is televised live on Denver's 9NEWS, KUSA-TV.
The National Western Stock Show and the Junior Auction continue to encourage today's youth to seek a future in agriculture, and to further their education; for example, ten percent of the Junior Auction bid price is deducted from every animal and donated to support the National Western Scholarship Trust.
Businesses or individuals interested in bidding on one of the prize-winning junior animals may call Morgan Unks at the National Western office at (303) 299-5560 or reach her by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to encouraging youth in agriculture through their tax-deductible support, the winning bidders receive a color photo calendar of their animal, a winning bidder ribbon and local and national recognition in several publications.
