Alberta Angus Association: Juniors

Welcome to the YOUTH section of the Alberta Angus Association! Our committee is dedicated to providing our youth in the agriculture industry with opportunities that will keep them in this industry. We help fund activities that motivate the youth to participate and become involved! The 4-H Awards program advertises ANGUS to a tune of over 1,000 members, the largest in Alberta! We provide scholarships to our Angus youth to further their education.

Alberta Junior Angus Association

The Alberta Junior Angus Association promotes the Angus breed by putting on the largest Provincial Breed Association Show in Canada every year and many of our current Alberta Angus Association members have come up through this junior Association. The show educates youth and showcases the talents in various competitions that are very impressive.

Alberta Angus Scholarships

AAA Dorothy Banks Memorial Scholarship

$500 Scholarship
Deadline: June 1

Dorothy Banks was a former school teacher who believed that education could be learned throughout all your life which she proved by attending University in her eighties to learn Spanish because she was going to Argentina for the World Angus Forum. She was a great supporter of young people and encouraged them to live life to the best that they could. Dorothy was a great supporter of Angus cattle which she proved because she volunteered to be the Alberta Angus Association secretary for twenty-five years.

In the memory of Dorothy Banks, the Alberta Angus Association is sponsoring a scholarship for any Alberta youth who is pursuing post secondary education and is open to all Alberta farm youth who have ever been involved in any activity (either 4-H or junior activities) using Angus influenced cattle. Preference will be given to high school graduates in the year of graduation or persons already enrolled in further educational study.
