Jr Beef Round-Up 2012

 

Brian Bolt: Junior Beef is a livestock show. We attract young people from primarily North Carolina, Georgia and South Carolina. The real benefit is in the work ethic. These young people are going to go out and do a lot of different things. They also have the opportunity to further their education because this is a very scholarship-rich competition. And lots of scholarship dollars are awarded and have been awarded and help these young people further their education, whatever that may be.

Erica Prescott: You learn a lot of leadership and work ethic. I mean, it takes a lot of work to get here and it is a lot of fun too, but it is a lot of responsibility. You do essays and you do interviews and questions and sales talks. So it helps you a lot with skills that you will learn in college. And then college will also help you here. They kind of work hand in hand.
