What is the International Youth Livestock Supreme Championship?

  • Under the partnership and with the support of Alberta 4-H and Alberta Junior Beef Breed Associations, an intense and integrated competition takes place at Olds Regional Exhibition’s Summer Synergy the first part of the week prior to Stampede, with the winners in several categories moving on to a Supreme Championship Final at the Calgary Stampede on the last Sunday.
  • Young enthusiasts demonstrate their stewardship skills in sheep or beef species classes and will compete this year for $70,000 in scholarships and prizes which are awarded to 55 of agriculture’s most promising youth.
  • There are five different components to the competition: confirmation, showmanship, grooming, multi-species judging and marketing. Youth also participate in a formal interview, providing them a valuable life experience.
