Angus Foundation
Invests in Future Leaders

One of the three tenets for the Angus Foundation is education. At the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) in Grand Island, Neb., 51 scholarships were given to undergraduate and graduate students totaling nearly $212,000 invested in future agriculture industry leaders.

“Supporting youth and education is what the Angus Foundation is all about,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “None of this would be possible without incredibly generous donors from the Angus industry.”

A five-member committee evaluates the scholarship applications and considers National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) involvement, state association participation, leadership and other criteria. Since 1998, the Angus Foundation has awarded more than $2.5 million in undergraduate and graduate scholarships.

The 2016 scholarship recipients were recognized on July 7 and 8 during the NJAS. A complete list of scholarship winners can be viewed online.

Cooking Up Competition at the National Junior Angus Show

Forty-five teams of Angus juniors recently competed in the 33rd All-American Certified Angus Beef®) Cook-Off July 5 in Grand Island, Neb. The contest, sponsored by the American Angus Auxiliary and Certified Angus Beef LLC (CAB), is one of the most popular events at the NJAS.

During the NJAS, historical figures, singing stars and pop culture characters were seen milling around the exhibition hall. Characters from the movies Anchorman and Inside Out mingled with baseball players, Willie Nelson, cowboys, Judge Judy, Olympic competitors and Minnie Pearl.

Participants prepare a CAB recipe, and write and perform a skit that promotes the product in an educational and entertaining way to the judges, the audience at the Cook-Off and, ultimately, to consumers. Teams may consist of two to six juniors, and are divided by age and type of beef used in the recipe: steak, roast or other beef.

“Year after year, we are always impressed by our Angus youth participating in the Cook-Off,” says Anne Lampe, co-chair of the competition. “The Angus breed and the CAB brand are fortunate to have such a strong future in the National Junior Angus Association members.”
