It's called a Sow Giveaway, but it's sure to be a little more
"ham" than that.
Southeast Community College, along with Aksarben, the Nebraska
Pork Producers and the Iowa Pork Producers, is sponsoring a Sow
Giveaway. Any 4-H or FFA member from Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri,
Kansas, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Colorado, and
Wyoming is eligible to enter. All they have to do is write a
500-word essay that addresses the following two items:
Detail how your project will benefit winning the sow and her
Include how the award will improve the profitability and growth
of your livestock project.
A reference letter from a 4-H leader, an extension agent or FFA
advisor also must accompany the entry.
Students are to include their name, address, phone number, and
age on their essay. Completed packets should be mailed to Annie
Erichsen at Southeast Community College, 4771 W. Scott Road,
Beatrice, NE 68310.
Entries must be postmarked by Aug. 15, 2012.
The winner must be able to pick up the sow and litter after 4
p.m. Sept. 30 at the Century Link Convention Center in Omaha.
Persons who need more information about the contest are asked to
contact Erichsen at 402-228-8258 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
