The Western Edge believes that the youth are our future. We are strong advocates of rodeo and agriculture and want to encourage our youth to participate as much as they can in every aspect of agriculture; whether it has to do with livestock, varied competitions including showing, judging, and the sport of rodeo, agronomy or ag business. We would like to help individuals climb to the top in their special field and be by their side as they do so. We want to encourage participation and leadership in these organizations and reward them for doing an outstanding job. The Western Edge will be choosing competitors through a process that establishes new and upcoming talent, which will uphold our product and integrity. We will factor in GPA, academic achievements, competitor achievements, and future aspirations through the enclosed application.
