The American-International Junior Charolais Association (AIJCA) Junior National Show is sponsored by the AIJCA and the host state junior association. Junior members prepare for this event year-round. Heifer, bull and steer shows showcase the members’ hard work and dedication to their Charolais animals.
The AIJCA also sponsors a national leadership conference that rotates around the country and is held in conjunction with the Junior National Show. Sessions that address personal development, leadership, career opportunities and technology in the beef industry are held. It is a place to also have fun and meet fellow juniors who are interested in the cattle industry and the future of the Charolais breed.
During the leadership conference, public speaking, interview/resume, cook-off, photography, advertising poster, team fitting, team sales, art and quiz bowl contests are held as well as a talent show.
