This contest will showcase the youth who have earned First Place honors in the Senior Division Showmanship competition.
The Master Youth Showman contest is open to Lawrence County 4-H and FFA Members only. To be eligible to compete, a 4-H or FFA member must have carried their respective species as a project throughout the year. 4-H and FFA members must show an animal in their contest that is carried as his or her own project and owned by that individual. In cases of project animal illness or death, individual consideration will be taken into account by the executive show committee.
Additional rules are the following:
1. Members must be at least 15 years of age as of January 1 of the current year and either compete and win in their species senior division contest or participate in the species master showman class. A separate master showman class will be added for the sole purpose of selecting that species representative if there are two or more showmanship divisions with youth over age 15. Only first-place entrants over 15 will be permitted to exhibit. In the event that there is a combined class of those over and under 15 years of age, the highest placing 15-year-old will compete.
2. In the event that an individual wins multiple species showmanship classes, there will be a random selection out of a hat of which species he/she represents by the executive committee. The second-place qualifier in the other species will represent that species.
3. The Master Showman will show horses, rabbits, goats, sheep, dairy and beef cattle.
4. In the event of a tie, one class will be selected as the tie-breaker by the executive committee prior to the show. In this case, the judge will have individual scores as well as placings. The individual score will be used as the tie-breaker.
