2010 National Beef Ambassador competition in Rapid City, South Dakota, October 1-3

Twenty-six students will compete for a position on the 2011 National Beef Ambassador Team, funded in part by the beef checkoff, as well as cash awards and college scholarships, at the National Beef Ambassador Competition held Oct. 1-3 at the Best Western Ramkota Hotel & Conference Center. Cash awards totaling $5,000 will be presented, as well as scholarship awards sponsored by the American National CattleWomen Foundation, Inc.

The National Beef Ambassador Program (NBAP) selects a team of five enthusiastic young adults to spend the next year telling the beef production story to consumers and students across the country. The program is funded in part by the Beef Checkoff Program and managed by American National CattleWomen, Inc. (ANCW) on behalf of America’s beef producers.

Contestants compete in four different judging areas: Consumer Promotion (scores individuals on their ability to educate consumers on the virtues of beef), Media Interview (scores the contestants’ ability to present a positive beef message to the media), Classroom Presentations (scored on the contestants’ ability to educate youth on beef and beef production through presentations), and Issues Response (scored based on reaching online audiences).
