The NEW Virtual Young Judges Competition presented by Arrow Energy gives aspiring judges the opportunity to showcase their budding talents. Exhibitors will partake in the judging process online through a series of images and videos.
The competition features seven categories; Stud Beef, Led Steer, Dairy Cattle, Stud Sheep, Dairy Goats, Horses and Poultry.
Entry is FREE and open to people aged 25 years and under, with the competition featuring a Junior Class for under 15 year-olds and a Senior Class for 15 to 25 year-olds.
The young judges will view the images and videos, ranking the animals from 1-4 based on criteria including their features and standing confirmation. The young judges will then submit their ranking online, along with a maximum three-minute video outlining their reasoning for the order.
Young Judges will need to rank each animal set presented in the judging videos e.g. Set 1 and Set 2. However, for animals with multiple sets, please submit ONLY one 3-minute video, outlining reasoning for the specified set. The specified sets are:
- Stud Beef - Set 1 - Charolais Bulls

- Stud Sheep - Set 1 - Texel Rams
