Jackson Wingert earns Angus Junior Bronze and Silver awards


Jackson Wingert, Ottawa, Kan., 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.

The 18-year-old son of George and Diane Wingert attends Ottawa High School and is a member of the NJAA and the Kansas Junior Angus Association where he has served as a director and currently serves as secretary.

He has participated in local, state, regional and national shows. At the National Junior Angus Show, Jackson participated in the quiz bowl, livestock judging, team sales, and extemporaneous and public speaking contests. He also participated in the Leaders Engaged in Angus Development conference and the Raising the Bar conference in 2012.

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, 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.
