The AKSARBEN Lamb Challenge Contest, held annually in conjunction with the AKSARBEN Stock Show, provides 4-H youths an opportunity to showcase their knowledge and ability to raise a Market Lamb for show. Lambs are provided by the AKSARBEN Foundation and awarded to youths chosen through an application process. Participants are evaluated on their projects from the time they are distributed in the spring all the way through the production phase.
Lamb Challenge recipients must have exhibited at the current year’s AKSARBEN Stock Show and have at least one year of exhibiting eligibility remaining. Previous Lamb Challenge participants are eligible to re-apply as long as they have not been selected to participate in the Purple Ribbon Auction with a previous Lamb Challenge Lamb.
