NJAA presents Bronze award


Texas

Kate Williams, Idalou, Texas, has earned the National Junior Angus Association's Bronze award, according to Robin Ruff, junior activities director of the American Angus Association in Saint Joseph, Mo.

The 11-year-old daughter of Kyle and Ann Williams attends Idalou Middle School and is a member of the NJAA and the Texas Junior Angus Association where he serves as director.

She has participated in local, state, and national shows. At the National Junior Angus Show, Kate participated in the quiz bowl, livestock judging, photography, poster, and coloring contests.

She has also submitted weight data to the Angus Herd Improvement Records.

The Bronze award is the first of two levels of the NJAA Recognition Program that began in 1972. Junior Angus breeders must apply for the award, 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 the nearly 6,000 active members nationwide.
