The Holstein Australia Youth Challenge is back for the first time in two years at International Dairy Week 2022! Entries are now open with the Youth Challenge taking place on Sunday 16th January.
Traditionally a highlight of the dairy youth calendar, the Youth Challenge is open to dairy youth groups, breed societies (national teams), Sub-Branch areas or state-based teams. Participation of youth representing all Australian dairy breeds is actively encouraged.
Justin Johnston, Holstein Australia Youth Challenge Coordinator, says: “The 2022 Youth Challenge will be something really special with so many shows and dairy youth programs cancelled or put on hold over the last 18 months. My advice is to register your team as soon as you can. We know from the texts and messages we’ve received that people are just itching to get back in the ring.”
Entering your team is simple. Just download the entry criteria form and then send an email to email@example.com including your team name, email address and phone number. Team members do not need to be finalised until the Saturday prior to International Dairy Week. Entries are capped at 16 teams.
Team members must all be under 22 years of age on the day of competition, with each team including at least three junior members (under 15 years old). Each team is restricted to three working members over the age of 18. Team coordinators do not necessarily need to be part of the working team and can be outside the competitive age limit.
For further information contact Holstein Australia firstname.lastname@example.org or Holstein Australia Youth Challenge Coordinator, Justin Johnston, on 0428 871 828. The deadline for team nominations is 5pm Saturday 18th December.
