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.
