Needed: Beef Am­bas­sadors

Catron Courier - - News -

The New Mex­ico Beef Am­bas­sador Con­test, spon­sored by the New Mex­ico Cow­Belles with ad­di­tional sup­port from the New Mex­ico Beef Coun­cil & New Mex­ico Cat­tle Grow­ers, is open for en­tries in both the Ju­nior ages 15 to 17 and Se­nior ages 18 to 20 con­tes­tant age groups. Reg­is­tra­tion dead­line to sub­mit an en­try is March 15, 2018.

The New Mex­ico Beef Am­bas­sador Pro­gram, man­aged by the New Mex­ico CowBelle or­ga­ni­za­tion, strives to pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for youth to ed­u­cate con­sumers and stu­dents about beef nutri­tion, food safety and stew­ard­ship prac­tices of the beef in­dus­try. Beef Am­bas­sadors tell their beef pro­duc­tion story to con­sumers and stu­dents through pro­mo­tion, ed­u­ca­tion, me­dia and the on­line en­vi­ron­ment.

A three-mem­ber beef am­bas­sador team, com­prised of the top two se­nior con­tes­tants and the top ju­nior con­tes­tant, will be cho­sen at the state con­test in Las Cruces. Dur­ing their year of ser­vice, the team will travel through­out the state to en­gage con­sumers and stu­dents with fac­tual in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing beef nutri­tion, food safety and pos­i­tive stew­ard­ship prac­tices through ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams, pre­sen­ta­tions, spe­cial events and so­cial me­dia. The state con­test will be held April 6, 2018 at NMSU Cam­pus, Las Cruces.

En­tries to be­come a Beef Am­bas­sador can be sub­mit­ted di­rectly through an on­line sub­mis­sion form be­low or by down­load­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion for mail or email sub­mis­sion.
