The GKB Super States Contest was designed to reward the state junior associations for their members' involvement in the contests and exhibition of their cattle throughout the week at the Junior National Hereford Expo.
 
There will be two divisions based on the number of cattle that are physically entered at the JNHE. The divisions are: Division 1) Less than 25 head; Division 2) 25 head or more.
 
Points are awarded to the top three placings of the individuals or teams (depending on the contest). In the case where a contest has more than one division, points will be awarded for each division, unless otherwise specified.
