The Seward County Community College Agriculture Department will sponsor its ninth annual Celebrity Livestock Judging Contest, Nov. 17-18 to raise money for the Agricultural program.
The college is looking for alumni, individuals and businesses to enter a team of three individuals who can judge livestock on Saturday, Nov. 18. No prior judging experience is required. The college will host a social and auction Friday, Nov. 17 at the Gateway Inn, to allow each team to purchase one additional member for their team—a "celebrity" judge who has previous judging experience.
During the judging contest, which will take place Saturday, Nov. 18, the highest four individual scores on each team will count toward the team total. The college will award prizes for teams and individuals.
Each team needs to pre-register with a $50 registration fee, although a team does not have to have all of its members until the judging contest. Anyone who needs additional team members can call Agricultural Instructors Evan Winchester or Ryan Orrick, who will help find individuals to complete a team.
Proceeds from the contest and auction will benefit the agricultural scholarship fund through the SCCC Development Foundation.
For more information, contact the Agriculture Department at 620-629-2637 or 1-800-373-9951, ext. 637.
