Media Interview – Contestants will participate in a mock media interview. The interview will have pre-determined questions to ask each contestant with the option to ask follow-up questions to extrapolate additional knowledge or clarify a point. Contestants will be judged on their knowledge, articulation, poise, and ability to tell the “beef production story” in a positive light.
Issue Response – Each contestant will be provided with a current beef industry topic. Contestants will be given time to write response and submit via email. Response will be judged for accuracy, message, and ability to send the correct message for the industry.
