NORTH CENTRAL JUNIOR
MEMBER OF THE YEAR
The Junior of the Year program recognizes one junior each year who has really excelled at participating not only in the Association, but also at school and in his/her community. The Junior of the Year award is given out in the fall at the NCHCA Show in Austin, Minnesota. The winner receives a HUGE traveling trophy that gets passed on to the next winning junior the following year. The winner also receives a specially designed trophy size belt buckle to keep and bragging rights throughout the year.
The NCHCA Juniors have two shows each year for Highland cattle.
