Program Description:

 

Put on your creative thinking hats! We’re asking for your creativity and engagement for the 2017 Youth & Agriculture in Action Showcase. This year the Showcase will include a competitive aspect, as clubs will be judged daily by the public for the “Best Display of the Day”. Awesome daily prizes will include: A Chuckwagon Barn Tour, Rodeo Tour, VIP access to the Corral or Super Dogs Show or a VIP Stagecoach ride with the Express Hitch in front of the Grandstand. Club members are encouraged to create interactive, hands-on and engaging displays for Stampede guests, while members have the opportunity to practice public speaking skills, show off their projects to 100,000+ guests per day, as well as have access to Stampede Park for two days. Some examples of interactive and engaging displays may include: dog agility courses by Canine clubs, Rodeo obstacle course (i.e. with a hobby horse) by a Rodeo Club, a guest engaging improv performance by a Performing Arts club, a camera explanation or photo taking & sharing activity by a Life Skills club, or a Multi or Livestock club could provide demos on how to fit cattle for a show or how to show or set-up their show animals. Animals for display are also encouraged! We challenge you to be creative and
unique!

Please fill out the application form below, as well as a detailed explanation of your display area. We will review all proposed ideas and choose the best applications for the two 2-day blocks (based on requested space). All selected clubs will be notified by TBA and then asked to provide additional event requirements, such as parking, camping and accreditation needs.

Camping will be available at Cobb’s Corn Maze – 20 minutes east of Calgary on Hwy 1 past Stoney Trail. There will be no power hook-ups, but a water and sewer truck will be available. Parking passes will be provided to clubs for day parking at Stampede Park, so clubs are encouraged to car pool. More details to follow.
