Keely Shultz earns Junior Bronze and Silver Awards

Keely Shultz, Danielsville, Ga., has earned the National Junior Angus Association’s (NJAA) Bronze and Silver awards, according to Caitlyn Brandt, events and junior activities director of the American Angus Association® in Saint Joseph, Mo.

Shultz, the 17-year-old daughter of Todd Shultz, is a member of the NJAA and the Georgia Junior Angus Association.

She has participated in local, state, regional and national shows and showmanship contests. At the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), Shultz participated in the quiz bowl, livestock judging, and Skill-A-Thon contests and the 2023 mentoring program. She was also a participant in the 2023 Raising the Bar conference and the 2023 Leaders Engaged in Angus Development (LEAD) conference.

The Bronze and Silver awards are the first two levels of the NJAA Recognition Program that began in 1972. Junior Angus breeders must apply for the awards, then meet point requirements in many areas of participation before receiving the honors. Applicants are evaluated in areas of junior Angus association activities and leadership, participation in showmanship, contests and shows, using performance testing to improve their herd and their progress in producing and merchandising Angus cattle.

The NJAA promotes the involvement of young people in raising Angus cattle, while also providing leadership and self-development opportunities for the nearly 4,500 active members nationwide.
