Samantha Schermer receives Junior Bronze and Silver pins

Iowa

Samantha Schermer, Latimer, Iowa, has earned the National Junior Angus Association's Bronze and Silver Awards, according to Robin Ruff, junior activities director of the American Angus Association in Saint Joseph, Mo.

Samantha is a member of the Iowa Junior Angus Association, where she has served as a director. She currently represents Iowa Angus breeders as their princess. In 2008, she participated in the Leaders Engaged in Angus Development Conference. At the National Junior Angus Show, Samantha has participated in the team sales, livestock judging and carcass contests. A member of the NJAA since 2003, Samantha has competed in Angus shows and showmanship competitions on the county, state, regional and national levels. While building her registered herd, she has submitted weaning and yearling weights to Angus Herd Improvement Records.

The 17-year-old daughter of Brad and KaRene Schermer attends CAL Community School, where she's active in FFA. She has received her Green Hand and Chapter Farmer Awards. Samantha has also received the Bronze, Silver and Gold Bars for her 4-H beef project.

The Bronze and Silver Awards are the first two levels of the NJAA Recognition Program that began in 1972. Junior Angus breeders must apply for the awards and then meet point requirements in many areas of participation before receiving the honors. Applicants are evaluated in areas of junior Angus association activities and leadership, participation in showmanship, contests and shows, using performance testing to improve their herd and their progress in producing and merchandising Angus cattle.

The NJAA promotes the involvement of young people in raising Angus cattle, while also providing leadership and self-development opportunities for nearly 7,000 active members nationwide.
