Beginning on Sunday, January 6th, students from Frisco ISD and all over Collin county gathered at Myers Park event center to compete in the annual Collin County Junior Livestock Show. This week-long competition includes the showing of rabbits, pigs, sheep, goats, Cattle, and chickens of both the meat and breeding variety. They can also enter various other competitions, such as floral arrangements, shop projects, and multiple crops in the greenhouse division. These students compete for ribbons in hopes to get a spot in the ribbon auction on Saturday.

Audrey Clinch, a Wakeland senior, expands on how the CCJLS ribbon auction “ Allows students to be recognized for the hard work that [they] put in,”

Those who placed during the week got to attend the ribbon auction sale. This is where many different businesses individuals and buyer’s clubs attend and support the students’ hard work “by bidding on the projects that get pulled for the sale,” says, Paige Musselman, a WHS senior. This show also doubles as preparation for some students who will go on to attend future livestock shows, such as Houston and Fort Worth. The students may sell their projects here, or some rehome their animals to breeders.
