Jr National Show & Competitions

The American  Junior Aberdeen Association sponsors a Junior National Show and Competition held every year in June. Typically it is held at a different venue every year in order to make use of different educational opportunities in the area and to help make the distance accessible to juniors in different areas of the country.

Youth members compete in skillathon, marketing, ultrasound, fitting, cook-off, showmanship, barnyard races and of course…the show.

The Queen and Princess interviews and selection are conducted during Junior Nationals. Also the AJAA Board of Directors is elected for the next term and scholarship winners are announced.
