The ATRSC is happy to be hosting youth contests in partnership with the SETSC. The contests will take place during judging on March 21st. There will be three components: leadership contest (pre-entry only), royalty contest and educational entries (e.g., posters, arts & crafts, etc.). Participations DO NOT need to show in the National Tan Show or be ATRSC members in order to participate. All youth Tan enthusiasts are encouraged to take part!
Check-in for the educational contests and royalty will be from 7:30 am - 8:30 am in the Tan area on Saturday, March 21st. ALL participants must be checked-in no later than 8:30am.
In order to keep the contests free for all youth wishing to enter we must do fundraising to offset the cost of hosting the contests and providing awards. We can accept monetary donations OR item donations that can be used as awards. E.g., in 2012 KW Cage donated a Groom n' Go that we used as the Grand Champion Educational Contest entry. If are willing to donate, or if you own a rabbit related business or have connections to one please contact Kelly. All sponsors will be recognized in the Tan Tribune for their contributions.
Thank you to our sponsors so far:
