State Show Entry Deadlines Approaching

Submitted by Lexie Hayes

Entries for the two state youth livestock shows, the Kansas State Fair Grand Drive and Kansas Junior Livestock Show (KJLS) are quickly approaching.  The Grand Drive deadline is July 15th. All animals must be entered directly through the state fair, using the online system or sending the entry form and payment to the state fair. Late entry forms will be accepted until July 25, with a late fee of $25/head. No entries will be accepted after July 25. For more information, visit http://www.kansasstatefair.com/p/exhibitors/livestock-competitions/377. Remember, nomination is not the same as entry; it only allows animals to be eligible for a state show. Families must submit an official entry in order to be able to exhibit.

Continuing this year, county agents and ag teachers will not need to sign the original entry for each exhibitor. After entries close, county agents and ag teachers will receive instructions from the state fair regarding how to login to the ShoWorks system and approve the entries for exhibitors from their county/school. 

KJLS entries are due August 15th. They must be completed online via the link at www.kjls.org. Although both shows use the ShoWorks system, families must submit an official entry to each show, independently, in order to exhibit. The shows are two separate entities.

Each show manages their own entries, so please contact them directly with questions or for further details.
