Youth Art Contest

Youth Art Contest

Young Artists, Writers and Photographers Invited to Compete

TSCRA will host several art contests for our Cattle Raiser youth. Youth will compete by age groups – 5 to 8 years, 9 to 13 years and 14 to 18 years in either Art, Photography or Writing. Entries will be judged prior to the convention where winners will be chosen by age group.  All visual entries will be displayed at the convention and attendees will be able to vote for Best of Show for each medium.

 

Each contestant will receive an Expo Day Pass to attend the Cattle Raisers Convention if they choose, but contestants are not required to attend to be eligible to participate or win awards.

 

First, second and third place winners will be selected in each age category. Winners will receive awards as follows:
1st place: $250; 2nd place: $150; 3rd place: $100

 

All entries must be received by the TSCRA office, no later than March 9, 2018.

You may be creative with your title however all entries must be relevant to the topic for this year’s contest:

 

How Cattle Help Feed The World
Share your real-life experiences to inspire or entertain others. We encourage you to use your most engaging writing style to make your essay stand out to the reader. Tell us interesting – perhaps little known-facts, compelling anecdotes, and your personal opinion related to the essay subject. Most importantly, share your passion for the beef industry and the ranching way of life.

 

Winning essays may also be published in The Cattleman magazine.

 

This contest is open to youth from ages 5-18 (age as of April 1, 2018).

 


Youth Photography Contest: Download the Photography Contest Rules (pdf) and Entry Form (pdf)
Original photos depicting cattle, horses or the ranching way of life are suitable. Use your imagination to capture the heart and soul of ranching life: Sunrise over the herd, kids and dogs playing at the windmill, branding time or a newborn calf with soft eyes and wobbly legs. Share your favorite scenes of cattle, horses and the ranching life.

 

This contest is open to youth from ages 5-18 (age as of April 1, 2018).
