ATTENTION JUNIORS: $4,500 for Top Jr. in 2018 Fort Worth National Show

THA Foundation has committed $4,500 to the exhibitor of the highest placing heifer and $2,500 to the second highest placing heifer at the 2018 Chris Lacy National Hereford Show in Fort Worth on January 29, 2018. A third and fourth place scholarship of $1,500 will also be awarded. To be eligible to receive these awards, the exhibitor must be a member of TJHA, be eligible to show in the junior show the previous week (exhibitor does not have to exhibit at the junior show) and be at the halter of his/her heifer.

Friends of THA have sponsored the funds for this award for many years and are committed to making this an annual event and hope to grow the fund to increase the prize as well as create a special belt buckle for the event. Anyone wishing to join this effort should contact Jack Chastain at the THA office.
