Wilmington College to Host Little International Showmanship Contest

The Little International at Wilmington College is a showmanship contest designed to teach 4-H and FFA members how to show multiple species. There will be three age divisions: Beginner (Ages 9-12), Intermediate (Ages 13-16), and Senior (Ages 17-21) – ages as of January 1, 2016. Four species will be shown: horse, beef cattle, sheep, and goats. Participants do not have to show every species; however it is a great learning experience. All animals and show equipment are provided. Each specie winner will be awarded a plaque and the overall winner will receive a larger prize! The contest will be April 2nd at the Wilmington College Equine Center, registration starting at 7:00 AM and going until 8:00 AM. From 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM they will have demonstrations on each species, with the contest starting right after. This is a perfect opportunity to show other species and gain new interests! For more information, contact Lynnsey Maassel, Collegiate 4-H President, at lmaassel@wilmington.edu.

Cost: $5 per class or $20 for all classes (pre-registered). $8 per class or $35 for all classes (day of show). Pre-Registration deadline: Postmarked by March 24, 2016.
