A young person in a red shirt passes out recipes at the fair. She gives away Beef Bucks at a racing event. She tackles tough questions about beef production, and she talks to the media. She travels far and wide to tout positive messages about beef. She’s a beef ambassador, and she is ready to serve the beef industry.

The 2010 South Dakota Beef Ambassador Contest was held on July 24, 2009 at the Summer Spotlight Show in Huron, SD. The beef ambassador program strives to provide an opportunity for youth to educate consumers about beef nutrition, food safety and stewardship practices of the beef industry.

Winners were selected in the Beginner, Junior and Senior divisions based on scores of four different categories: media interview, classroom presentation, consumer promotion and issues response. The media interview is a mock question and answer session. Judges look for knowledge, articulation, poise and optimism. The classroom presentation challenges young people to develop a curriculum and a lesson plan for third and fourth graders. The consumer promotion has each contestant serving a sample of beef while telling mock consumers about beef nutrition and recipes. Finally, the issues response gives judges a chance to see if contestants can tackle negative articles in the media. Each contestant writes a brief response to an article, stimulating an interaction in the online environment.

Winning the beginner division was Emma Christensen of Big Stone City, SD. The junior division winner was Calah Covey from Hamill, SD. Earning the senior division was Calli Pritchard from Aurora, SD. All three will have the opportunity to serve the beef industry in South Dakota, traveling to fairs, events and area promotions.
