Digi-Star announced this week its third annual "Be a Digi-Star Champion" contest, open to youth under 21 exhibiting livestock projects during the 2015 show season. Up for grabs is a new livestock scale system from Digi-Star.
To enter, youth exhibitors can post a picture of their 2015 livestock project to Digi-Star's Facebook page. The contest will run May 1- May 30, 2015.
The photo that receives the most likes will win their choice of an Alleyway or Wrangler Jr. Livestock scale or a StockWeigh 300 indicator. The final tally will count likes submitted by 5 p.m., May 30, 2015.
After the contest ends, anyone that entered will receive a special discount code for Digi-Star's online store.
The 2014 winning photo of Drake and Alyssa Hoyt and their market lambs received more than 1,200 likes. They chose a Wrangler Jr. Livestock scale with a StockWeigh 300 indicator as their prize.
"It is awesome! So far we've weighed six pigs, three sheep, three dogs and all the kids. It transports easily in the back of my pick up and it's nice it only needs 2AA batteries to operate," says Justin Hoyt, Drake and Alyssa's dad.
In an ongoing effort to support youth livestock education, Digi-Star also offers specific discounts to Vo-Ag instructors for livestock scale systems purchased online at digi-star.com.
Instructors can call 800-225-7695 and request the Vo-Ag coupon code.
