The Agriculture Department at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) is hosting the 69th annual ‘Aggie Days’ this year on April 6, 8-9. In order to protect participants, teachers, and spectators, face coverings are mandatory for all events. Additionally, no meals will be served during the contests. One notable change to this year’s agenda is the Livestock Judging Contest, which is traditionally held on Saturday, has been scheduled for Thursday, April 8.
Aggie Days is a yearly interscholastic agriculture contest that hosts hundreds of student participants. Students from all over the four-state area will travel to NEO to compete in a variety of events, from speech to livestock judging. Aggie Days is open to any student who is a member of 4-H or FFA. Schools will also have the chance to win two Viking Scholarships by earning team points toward the divisional sweepstakes. Teams in both single teacher and multiple teacher divisions will earn points for their performance in individual and group events, with the High Sweepstakes Team earning a Viking Scholarship. Buckles will also be awarded to the high individuals in the senior divisions of the horse judging and livestock judging contests.
“The Ag Department is looking forward to hosting the 69th annual Interscholastic Aggie Days contests this year,” said Dr. Mary Booth, NEO Agriculture Department Chair. “We are excited to have our students on campus and to be able to bring Ag teachers, 4-H leaders, and the youth in agriculture onto campus as well.” Registration and the 2021 Aggie Days Letter can be found at: https://www.judgingcard.com/Registration/Info.aspx?ID=12220 https://www.judgingcard.com/Registration/Info.aspx?ID=12221 https://www.judgingcard.com/Registration/Info.aspx?ID=12222 For more information, please contact Brittany Parker at 918-540-6368 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
