American LaMancha Club Youth Program

    The American LaMancha Club now has a new youth/awards committee and they are working hard to develop
    new youth oriented projects and activities as well as a full complement of youth recognitions for the upcoming year.
    Members of the committee include Chair Terri Burke, backlashlamanchas@gmail.com,
    and Members Deb Macke, raintreelamanchas@gmail.com,  James Haught, haughtdvm@gmail.com, Aaron Carter
    hrtmtcarterkids@yahoo.com and

    Some of the new projects that the committee has been working on include two new scholarships for deserving
    youth members. The American LaMancha Club Bob Webb Memorial Youth Scholarship will be presented to a
    High School Senior and the American LaMancha Club Ray Engeman Memorial Youth Scholarship will
    be presented to a College Student.

    The committee has incorporated space in the newsletter geared toward the youth members. It will
    include art work, articles, show brags and etc. Any youth is welcome to submit items to be included. There
    is also a new area of the website dedicated to the Youth Program. It will include scholarship applications, other youth
    award information, youth biographies and membership listing as well as a place for youth artwork and other submitted items.

    There is also a new YOUTH MEMBERSHIP available. Youth must be under 18 to be eligible for this new membership
    option. Cost will be $10.00 per year and will not include voting privileges.

    The long range plans for the committee include recruiting more youth members and developing more
    youth programs to keep those members involved and active. The committee hopes to be able to include more information
    in both the newsletter and on the website pertaining to areas of interest to youth - showmanship tips, basic
    goat care, 4-H and FFA program outreach - to name just a few.

    Any youth wanting to contribute items to the newsletter or for the website should contact one of the above
    committee members. Any members wanting to join the committee or with ideas to submit should also contact
    a committee member.

    More information about many of the above programs and projects will be available soon.
