Youth between the ages of eight and 21 who are involved in Beef 4-H, junior cattle shows or beef production can win cash in the Young Guns essay contest.
The theme of the contest is what sustainability means to you and what it looks like on your farm or ranch. An entry may be submitted as an essay, video, audio segment, social media campaign, press release, or any other form of communication tool.
First prize is $1,000, second spot wins $500, and the third-place prize is $250.
The entry form can be found at albertabeef.org. The entry deadline is midnight, May 30. Winners will be picked by a panel of judges at the Alberta Beef Producers semi-annual meeting in June.
