MADISON, Wis. – Division-topping Hereford juniors recognized for their placings in the photo and poster contests at the 2023 VitaFerm® Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE), “Mad Dash to the Hereford Bash,” on July 12 in Madison, Wis.
Young people compete with posters created to promote the 2023 JNHE. Posters are judged for creativity, originality, personal design and hardwork. The promotional poster competition is sponsored by the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA).
The photo contest helps NJHA members develop their photography skills through the creative spirit they find looking through the lens of a camera. Each age division is divided into two categories: Hereford cattle and Hereford people. Photo contest entries were submitted prior to the JNHE and judged by a panel of experts in their respective categories. The NJHA and Hereford Publications Inc. co-sponsor the photography contest.
