Payton Taylor was an inspiration to all of us and we were blessed to have known her. If you didn't meet her you can still find out what impact she made on others lives.
We hope it makes someone's day if they find a #LiveLikePayton rock regardless if they post it, keep it or rehide it. Payton loved surprising people with little gifts and we hope this can bring a smile to someone else.


YOUTH EXHIBITION POULTRY ASSOCIATION
November 17-18 2018

SHOWMANSHIP COMPETITION

WHO CAN ENTER? All exhibitors entered in the poultry show, ages 4 through 18. You do not need to be a member of YEPA to enter the regular showmanship competition. You MUST be a member of YEPA to be eligible for our special YEPA club awards. You may sign up as a member before the competition begins (at the YEPA table).

CLASSES: Pre-Junior (ages 4-7), Junior (ages 8-10), Intermediates (ages 11-13), Senior (ages 14 & up)
Note: age at the day of the competition.

TIME: Showmanship will begin following the completion of the judging of the Junior show, Saturday, November, 17th.

SHOWMANSHIP BIRD: It Is HIGHLY recommended you enter a separate bird for showmanship. If your bird is not in the cage during regular show judging, the bird may not be judged. If this is your second string bird, know its faults. The bird is not judged but the knowledge of your bird is judged. The condition of the bird chosen for showmanship is judged.

JUDGES:

Each judge will be asking the exact same question in each class, for each age group, to keep the scoring fair for all of you. It will be to your advantage not to share the questions with other competitors which might knock you out of first place or placing at all in your class.

• Following judging you may return your bird to its cage but you must come back to the showmanship area in case there is a tie breaker needed in your class.

AWARDS: First through Fifth Place in the Junior, Intermediate & Senior divisions. All Pre-Juniors will be given an award.

SIGN UP: YOU MUST SIGN UP IN ADVANCE OF THE COMPETITION.

1. Sign up begins on Friday, Nov. 16th at the YEPA table. All exhibitors wishing to enter the showmanship competition should sign up before the competition.

2 Showmanship is being scheduled by an appointment (similar to a doctor appointment).

A.     During sign in you may choose your time to go before the judge. First come, first served.

• Using this method of advanced sign in will give you plenty of time to participate in other activities that will be going on throughout the day without standing in line for long periods.

• It is recommended that you sign up during check in of your birds on Friday Nov. 16th to get the best time slots. Sign in at the YEPA table located in the junior section of the showroom.

Awards: 1st through 5th place.
