Wisconsin Holstein Youth to be Honored at Nationals
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/02/2015

Wisconsin will have four semi-finalists competing in the Distinguished Junior Member contest, and two semi-finalist for the Young Distinguished Junior Member competition at this year's National Holstein Convention in St. Charles, Illinois.

Open to any National Junior member ages 17-21, the DJM award is the highest honor that can be given to a Holstein Junior member. Only 12 members in the nation are eligible to compete in the semi-final round.

Wisconsin students in the competition include Elizabeth Endres, Waunakee; Kayla Krueger, Marion; Jessica Pralle, Humbird; and Andy Sell, Watertown.

Each of the semi-finalists completed an entry book, detailing their Junior Holstein project work, involvement with their cattle, program participation, and school and community activities.

Meanwhile, state YDJM semi-finalists going to nationals will be Rachel McCullough, Juda; and Dawson Nickels, Watertown. That contest recognizes Holstein youth ages 9-16 for their accomplishments.

The Distinguished Junior Member semi-finalists all have won the similar contest at their state level.
