Young cattle raisers can showcase their creative talents by entering up to four youth contests during the Cattle Raisers Convention, set for Friday through Sunday, April 4-6, in San Antonio. Deadline for all entries is Monday, March 3.

Youth ages 5-17 can enter the photography, art, and essay contests. Youth ages 13-17 are eligible to enter the beef promotion video contest, the newest contest added to the lineup. Each contest is specifically designed to allow young cattle raisers to showcase how ranching life has positively affected their family.

Farm Credit is sponsoring the contests. A total of $5,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to winners. Entries will be judged and winners selected at the Cattle Raisers Convention.

All contestants must be a member of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association -- a student member, child, or grandchild of a member; or a child of parents who are employed by a Cattle Raisers Association member.

Non-members can become members prior to the contest by contacting the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association at 817-332-7064. There is a membership fee of $25 for young members.

Entry information is available online at http://bit.ly/1dt4zXg.

The 137th annual Cattle Raisers Convention is set for April 4-6 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio. Highlights include the popular School for Successful Ranching, the Cattle Raisers Expo, and general sessions and committee breakout session covering a wide range of economic, ranching, and wildlife topics.

A complete schedule can be found on the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association convention website.
