Ag Industry News

Young men and women age 18 or younger have the opportunity to win scholarships and prizes through the 2021 Kansas Cowboy Poetry Youth Roundup.  This is a cowboy poetry contest that is being conducted online. 

There is no charge to enter the Youth Roundup.  Contestants will be asked to write an original western-themed poem and post a video of their presentation of it online.  The top three winners will receive educational scholarships of $500, $300, and $200, in addition to gift cards to leading western wear stores and award certificates signed by the Governor.  Videos of the poems will be posted on YouTube for viewing by the panel of judges and the public and the number of likes will be factored into the final ranking. 

Youth roundup entries are due online by August 6, 2021.  For more information, go to www.cowboypoetryyouthroundup.com

Many thanks to the sponsors who make these awards possible:  The Flint Hills Discovery Center Foundation, the Kansas Farm Bureau, and the Kansas and Western Wordsmiths Chapters of the International Western Music Association.
