Congratulations to Jimmy Phillips of Oregon on being selected by the judges for this year's contest. While fellow breeders select the winner, I always read through the entries as well just for fun. I was thrilled by the number of entries received and the time taken to put together responses. There were many deserving kids. I would like to encourage everyone to check back again next summer for next year's contest. The most rewarding thing about this contest is knowing that I have in some small way I have helped out someone else. I also love that every year at least one person tells me that they are going to start doing a similar contest in their breed. That is wonderful. Please do not hesitate to "copy" this idea.
Each year I hold a contest for a youth Tan breeder to win a pair of black Tans. The rabbits must be picked up at the ARBA National Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana in October of this year. You do not need to be in attendance at Convention, but you must have transportation for the animals from the show. The deadline for entering is August 31st.
