Ellen Hoffschneider receives Bronze and Silver pins
Ellen Hoffschneider, Arlington, Neb., 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.
Ellen is an active member of the Nebraska Junior Angus Association, where she has served as a director and secretary/treasurer. She is the reigning Miss Nebraska Angus. Ellen competes in Angus shows on the local, state and regional levels. At the National Junior Angus Show, Ellen has participated in the graphic design, writing, public speaking, team sales, livestock judging and quiz bowl contests. She has entered bulls on test and consigned cattle to the Nebraska Cattlemen's Classic. The 18-year-old daughter of Scott and Jennifer Hoffschneider is a senior at Logan View Junior/Senior High School. Ellen joined the NJAA in 1994.
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.
