SC ANNOUNCEMENTS Purina Animal Nutrition welcomes Burson and Moen to cattle team Purina Animal Nutrition is pleased to announce the addition of Clay Burson, Ph.D. and Martha Moen, Ph.D. to the cattle consultant team.

Burson supports beef sales efforts in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah in his role as a technical sales specialist. Moen serves as a grass cattle consultant, supporting cattle producers in Alabama, Florida and Georgia. Both Burson and Moen provide local expertise and work one-onone with producers to help them find the right solutions for their operations. “We are excited to have Clay and Martha join the Purina Animal Nutrition team,” says Matt Hareldson, cattle marketing manager with Purina Animal Nutrition. “They bring a wealth of cattle knowledge to our team and serve as great resources for producers.”

Burson grew up in Abilene, Texas. He received his bachelor’s degree in animal science and his master’s degree and Ph.D. in ruminant nutrition from Texas Tech University. Burson’s master’s program focused on growth promoting technologies for feedlot cattle. His doctoral research focused on the differences between confined cow/calf calving systems and traditional pasture calving. Prior to joining Purina, Burson served as a graduate research and teaching assistant in the Department of Animal and Food Sciences at Texas Tech University. “With Purina, I have the opportunity to help cattle producers achieve their operation goals,” says Burson. He adds, “It’s rewarding to help them find solutions that work for them.” Moen grew up in Inverness, Florida. She received a bachelor’s degree in animal science and

a master’s degree in agriculture education and communication from the University of Florida before earning her Ph.D. in agronomy from Texas A&M University. Her master’s program focused on the sources beef cattle producers use to obtain production practice information. Moen’s doctoral research focused on the application of fibrolytic enzymes and bacterial inoculants to sorghum silage and small-grain hay. Before joining the Purina team, Moen served as assistant professor at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College and as a county livestock extension agent through the University of Florida. Moen adds, “Collaborating with producers and working with Purina employees across the country to help local customers is what I enjoy most so far.”

VIEW FROM A VET

Lumpy Jaw In Cattle

L

umpy jaw, technically identified as actinomycosis, is a localized bacterial infection, most often occurring in the lower jaw bone (mandible) caused by a bacterium known as Actinomyces bovis. This organism is a normal inhabitant of both the oral cavity and respiratory tract. The upper jaw, maxilla can also be affected, but not nearly as often. It is suspected that an opportunity such as a cut, or puncture wound, or broken tooth has to occur in order for the bacterium to establish itself. Clinical experience dictates that a fractured tooth is often the culprit, the damaged tooth acting as an entry point for the organism. Animal stress leading to suppressed immune function may be a causative factor in establishment of infection. The area of involvement usually remains fairly localized, although in chronic situations the infection can become very proliferative. Often there are numerous different families of bacteria involved with Lumpy Jaw lesions. Diagnosis is most often made following evaluation and consideration of clinical signs. An oral examination should be conducted with special attention given to the premolars and molars of the affected side. Ideally, radiographs (X-rays) are indicated to allow assessment of the extent of involvement of the bone; realizing that there is a distinction of how much you can spend on a commercial cow versus an animal with some genetic merit. In many cases, a treatment failure is often directly related to poorly performed diagnostics. Other causes of swollen jaws may be jaw fractures, soft tissue abscesses and tumors, although rare. Treatment The road to successful treatment and resolution of a case of Lumpy Jaw revolves

64 June/July 2017 • theshowcircuit.com

Radiograph exhibiting extensive involvement of the mandible. around the chronicity of the problem and the amount of tissue involvement. It is nearly impossible to ever completely resolve the bony lesion; as even after treatment success has been accomplished changes in parent bone architecture are such that a normal appearance may never be achievable. Early cases of actinomycosis respond very well to systemic treatment with sodium iodide and broad spectrum antibiotics, providing deep bone or alveolar involvement have not occurred. Usually several treatments of sodium iodide, administered 5 to 10 days apart and given intravenously, are required to treat this condition. An antibiotic with longer duration may be administered along with the iodide treatment to reduce cow handling and stress. For those individuals with deeper bone infection, tooth and or alveolar involvement, surgical intervention is the only means to complete resolution. Radiographs and a thorough oral examination are key to determining the extent of involvement and the extent of surgery.

Although not inexpensive to perform, individuals with genetic merit can benefit from surgical intervention with improvement in production occurring a short time after resolution of the problem. Most often times in more chronic situations, several jaw teeth (pre molars or molars) may have to be removed and the mandible or maxilla bone may need curetted in order to resolve the infection, once again, postsurgery sodium iodide and long term antibiotics are used as an adjunctive therapy to resolve the problem. Usual recovery time after tooth extraction/mandibular revision is 2 to 3 weeks. Although it has been noted some lesions come back after treatment, most often times in our practice, resolution of the problem is complete whether medical treatment of more benign infections or surgical intervention of the more chronic are involved. The key to resolving Lumpy Jaw is early, decisive treatment, properly administered for the proper amount of time.

PROFESSOR to PRODUCER

My Guesstimate In a previous article, I suggested that I might provide my opinion regarding the future of beef carcass weights. So … here it is. One cannot predict the future without a thorough knowledge and understanding of the past. One cannot know where she/he is going without knowing from where they came. An historical perspective is necessary to predict the future. In a previous article, I stated that trends in the cattle industry follow the footsteps of the swine industry. Therefore, an understanding of changes made in the swine industry are necessary to know where the cattle industry is within the historical change of events. [Incidentally changes within the swine industry have followed changes within the poultry industry – again, a factor of generation interval and number of offspring produced per year.] During and prior to the 1950s, market hogs were extremely fat and, as a percentage of market weight, lighter muscled. The 1960s brought change to the market hog with an emphasis on percent ham and loin and percentage of the carcass as the four lean cuts (ham loin, Boston butt and picnic shoulder). Consequently, market hogs became much leaner and heavier muscled – so much so that by the early 1970s, gilts and sows were experiencing dystocia due to small pelvic openings. Breeders responded by changing the phenotype of hogs to larger frame, more durable animals and market weights began to get heavier and carcasses became larger. By the early 1980s, much of the swine industry had moved indoors. Swine production had moved from pasture to outdoor concrete feeding floors to enclosed slatted environmentally controlled floor systems. The outdoor environment that had allowed the high-topped, slab-sided, large-framed pig to survive was mostly gone and pigs of this phenotype were having production difficulty and survival problems in confinement facilities. Females

102 June/July 2017 • theshowcircuit.com

were just not sound enough nor hearty enough to be productive. So, type changed again. Breeders and professional judges emphasized deeperbodied, flatter-topped, wider-sprung, bigger-boned, more durable hogs that could cope with the stresses of confinement. And, these hogs of the 1980s were more productive in confinement. But, as breeders flattened out the top (the term more uniform in their arch disappeared as a desirable descriptive term) market hogs became lighter muscled. During the 1970s and 1980s, market weights increased some but for the most part were stable. The 1990s and 2000s brought more change in phenotype. Packers wanted leaner, heavier-muscled market hogs and as genetic pig companies responded by developing maternal lines and terminal lines that were leaner and heavier-muscled, packers found they could increase cutting floor efficiency by processing heavier carcasses. So … carcass weights increased without sacrificing leanness. During this 50-plus year period, the cattle industry also was changing, but at a much slower rate due in part to an increased generation interval compared to that of the swine industry. Prior to WWII, cattle were larger-framed and coarsermade with uneven fat distribution. Following WWII, the opinion influencers within the beef industry promoted smaller-framed cattle that were more refined in their makeup with more even fat distribution. The idea was that as people left the farm and moved to the cities, they would have smaller families, need fewer calories and want smaller portion sizes. The concept of baby beef caught hold and the “belt buckle” cattle of the 1950s and early 1960s were the cattle of choice. During the 1960s university research suggested cattle should be larger-framed, later-maturing and leaner. The yield grade system was developed and the quality

grade system was modified several times from the 1960s to the 1980s. The 1970s and 1980s saw beef cattle increase in frame score and become later maturing. The beef audit of the 1980s found retail beef was too fat to meet consumer desires but consumers also, wanted higher quality (more Choice) beef. The quality grade and yield grade systems were “uncoupled” so more beef carcasses could be quality graded. Prior to the mid 1980s, any carcass that was graded by the USDA inspector had to be both yield graded and quality graded. During the 1980s, the beef industry had a great discussion about once again changing the grading system – i.e. lowering the amount of marbling to qualify for the low Choice grade. Some health care professionals and consumer influencers were insisting that good grade beef was more healthful than choice beef because Choice beef contained too much fat. The ultimate solution and probably the best solution was to simply change, the name of the Good grade to Select and to leave the marbling requirements alone. In later years one change was made to the quality grade system and that was to raise the amount of marbling requirement for B maturity carcasses to grade low choice – in an attempt to increase tenderness of B maturity beef. By the 1990s, the cattle industry realized that the seedstock industry had selected cattle that were too large in their frame score and too late maturing with a host of other problems. Breeders began their quest to make beef cattle smaller. In their frame score, and more predictable in their productivity with the increased use of EPDs. An important point to remember is that the seedstock portion of the beef cattle industry can and does make change in phenotype/genotype much faster than the commercial portion of the industry. Again, in large part due to generation

interval, but also since most of the concentration and vertical integration has occurred only within the feedlot industry and not within the commercial cow/calf industry. Change occurs faster within the poultry and swine industries partly due to increased vertical integration and concentration throughout these two industries. Whether this fact is good or bad is not a point of discussion in this article. Consequently, change that can be seen within the beef cattle seedstock industry has a substantial lag time and often does not occur for several years (7 to 10 years) within the commercial industry. So where is the beef cattle industry currently in the pendulum of change? The feedlot industry is experiencing cattle with heavy carcass weights and cattle that physically have some structure problems i.e. too straight in their skeletal structure that often makes the cattle unsound at heavy live weights. This is a result of previous selection for larger framed cattle. The seedstock industry has downsized the breeding cattle from a frame score perspective (some judges/breeders are going a little too far). Some opinion influencers within the show industry are going a little too far in selecting cattle with too much leg set and too much belly depth that are too fat in a quest to make the cattle sounder and easier fleshing (perhaps similar to what happened with show ring hogs in the 1980s). Where are we headed? The show ring pendulum will swing back some in the future to cattle that are a little leaner with more muscle. The good thing is the commercial beef cattle industry does not change as much or as fast at one time as does the breeding/seedstock portion of the industry. Therefore, carcass weights will remain similar to where they are now. Cattle above 1500 lbs. live weight are not easily handled on the processing lines. Cattle weights will not decrease substantially due to the economics of increased size on the cutting tables.

From the baby beef type like the Champion Load of Fat Steers at the 1906 National Western (top) to the racehorse type of the early ’80s like this Ildeno steer shown by our SC editor, Sharla Ishmael, at a county fair circa 1984 and bred by Shelly Davis of Illinois (above), cattle types have definitely seen the extreme. Where will it go next?

are lower, and decreased carcass weights when live prices are higher and/or cattle are in short supply: but, the range in carcass weights will not be drastic. The increased use of distiller’s grains allows feedlots to feed fat cattle for longer periods of time and to heavier weights without experiencing rumen acidosis. Distiller’s grains has been an industry game changer. One thing I do not expect is for carcass weights to go back to the 700-lb. range. There is too much economy of scale in larger carcasses.

Technology has the ability to change how we fabricate carcasses and present our beef There will continue to be a cycle of in- product to consumers. How wrong was the creased carcass weights when live prices

industry expert who told my swine production class in 1971 that hogs carcasses were getting too large because consumers did not want 18 pound hams? The beef industry relative to carcass size is approaching where it needs to be. The industry just needs to continue to improve beef quality and production efficiency.

Consumers are Driving Packer Changes By Wes Ishmael

U

ltimately, consumers determine what enters and exits the harvest facilities of the nation’s largest meat packers. Consumer demand determines which meats they’ll consume in terms of quantity and price, or if they’ll consume meat at all. Consider that last October, Tyson Foods – one of the largest beef and meat packers in the nation – took a 5% stake in a company called Beyond Meat, which is a plant-based protein producer. Think here in terms of a company aiming to make products that feel and taste like ground beef, for instance, made from plant products and no actual meat. “We’re enthusiastic about this investment, which gives us exposure to a fast-growing segment of the protein market,” said Monica McGurk, Tyson Foods’ Executive Vice President of Strategy and New Ventures & President of Foodservice. “It meets our desire to offer consumers choices and to consider how we can serve an ever-growing and diverse global population, while remaining focused on our core prepared foods and animal protein businesses.”

Tyson made $150 million available to launch Tyson New Ventures LLC. At the time, the company described it as, “a venture capital fund focused on investing in companies developing breakthrough technologies, business models and products to sustainably feed a growing world population.”

According to the Beyond Meat website, current products include the Beyond Burger, “the world’s first plant-based burger that looks, cooks and tastes like fresh ground beef….” There’s also the Beast Burger, Beyond Chicken Strips and Beyond Beef Crumbles, all claiming ingredients that are GMO-free.

Antibiotic use is a current lynchpin

A couple of months after purchasing the stake in Beyond Meat,

110 June/July 2017 • theshowcircuit.com

“This fund is about broadening our exposure to innovative, new forms of protein and ways of producing food, while remaining focused on our core fresh meats, poultry and prepared foods businesses, which are also experiencing tremendous consumer demand and growth,” McGurk said. You can likely think of a number of reasons why one of the nation’s largest meat purveyors might be interested in non-meat protein. Everything from catering to fringe consumers like vegans and the antieverything crowd, to developing protein that’s more affordable, if in fact that is the case.

Far as that goes, there’s plenty of angst among some mainstream consumers, those who want meat. They continue to want to know more about the product that ends up on their dinner plate, everything from how the livestock was raised to how it was harvested.


“We’re currently in the midst of a shift in the marketplace where the culture and conversation around conventional food, particularly online, is changing as consumers navigate which foods to adopt, moderate or abandon,” says Charlie Arnot, CEO of the Center for Food Integrity (CFI). He said that in January, announcing a new research approach—digital ethnography—to, “identify influential consumer groups and the motivations that not only dictate food trends, but drive conversations that impact the decisions of others as they make choices at the grocery store or form opinions about the products, processes, people and brands that define today’s food system.” For the past 10 years, CFI has conducted annual consumer trust research to better understand public opinion and how to engage with consumers to earn trust. The use of antibiotics in food production continues to be a primary issue driving consumer distrust in animal agriculture, according to CFI research. Meat and food companies like Tyson are responding. Since 2011, Tyson stopped using human antibiotics in its 35 hatcheries and reduced use in its broiler chickens by more than 80%. Related, insofar as their efforts to reduce the use of medically important antibiotics, Cargill—another of the nation’s largest packers—is also making changes. Last August, Cargill ended the use of gentamicin—an antibiotic used in both human and animal healthcare—for disease prevention in turkeys harvested for its two largest brands. The company emphasized turkeys will continue to receive antibiotics for control and treatment of disease. Later that month, Cargill introduced the Honest Turkey™ product line, which comes from turkeys that were never treated with antibiotics. You and I could wax philosophic about choosing to describe one product line as honest, thereby suggesting all other product lines are dishonest, but the company left little doubt as to the direction it’s heading. “Eliminating antibiotic use for disease prevention purposes is the next logical step after ending the use of antibiotics for growth promotion purposes, which we began in 2014,” said Jan Hood, head of marketing for the Cargill turkey business. “Based on consumer research and their desire for transparency in food production, we developed the Honest Turkey™ product line, which communicates the turkeys are raised without antibiotics.” “When needed, we believe the judicious use of antibiotics in animal agriculture helps assure a safe food supply,” said John Niemann,

president of Cargill’s Wichita-based turkey business. “At Cargill, we remain committed to exploring fact-based technologies as alternatives to antibiotics, and to the reduced use of shared-class antibiotics when the efficacy of a given technology has been proven effective and economical.” Era shifting As for cattle and beef, you might recall that Cargill sold its two Texas-based yards at Bovina and Dalhart to Friona Industries in July last year. The company’s last two yards in Leoti, KS and Yuma, CO were sold in April — pending completion of a definitive agreement and regulatory review —t o Omaha-based Green Plains Inc. (GPI), a vertically integrated ethanol producer with existing feedyards at Kismet, KS and Hereford, TX. The Cargill yards being acquired by GPI have a one-time capacity of approximately 155,000 head. Thus ends what was once known as Caprock Cattle Feeders. “Selling our two remaining feedyards aligns with our protein growth focus by allowing us to redeploy working capital away from cattle feeding operations to other investments,” says John Keating, president of Cargill’s Wichita-based protein business operations and supply chain. “By partnering with Green Plains in a multiyear supply agreement, the Yuma and Leoti yards will continue to supply cattle to our beef processing facilities at Fort Morgan, CO., and Dodge City....” In March last year, before selling its feedyards, Cargill announced a 20% reduction in shared-class antibiotics—those used for human and animal health—used at its yards, as well as five additional feed yards owned by alliance partners that provide Cargill with cattle. That’s about 1.2 million head of cattle annually. “Our decision to eliminate 20% of the antibiotics used in our beef cattle, which are also used for human health, took into consideration customer and consumer desires to help ensure the long-term medical effectiveness of antibiotics for both people and animals,” Keating said. Keating emphasized animal welfare while reducing antibiotic use. “We need to balance those desires with our commitment to ensure the health of animals raised for food, which contributes to the production of safer food,” Keating explained. “We have an obligation to ensure that sick animals do not suffer, and that we prevent them from becoming ill, and we will use ongoing research efforts as the basis for any future additional reductions in antibiotic use. We’ve listened to consumers and our customers, we’ve taken this first step, and we believe there are more steps coming in the not-too-distant future.” At the time, Cargill also announced it would increase to 90% by 2018 the Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certified feed yards that supply it cattle.

Missouri CLUB CALF ASSOCIATION

This year, the Battle of the Breeds show was a huge success! We added a lot of new things, including a Snapchat filter, which many of the young exhibitors enjoyed greatly! We believe that is something we are going to have again. This show wouldn’t have been possible without all the people behind the scenes. Mostly, we would like to thank all our sponsors this year, because without their generous donations, this show wouldn’t have award so many cash prizes as well has other awards. Exhibitors that made the Top 5 enjoyed a director’s chair. This year’s judge was very good with all the exhibitors, especially the young or first-time ones. Another thank you goes out to the scholarship committee, because without them this show wouldn’t have reached so many young exhibitors. One last big thank you going to the MCCA junior board, because they do so much behind the scenes to put this show on. We would like you to look into the future for our scholarship deadline this summer. This scholarship will be award at the end of the year awards banquet. This year we are planning on having the banquet at the Missouri State Fair, so please keep checking on our website for dates. Also, check for updated points at: www.missouriclubcalfassoc.com

student’s path to college isn’t just about selecting the school; high school students and their families need to determine how to pay for that college degree too. Scholarships can be a big part of funding a college degree, but a plan and hard work is needed to attain sufficient funding through being a successful multischolarship recipient. “In my mind, there are two big challenges recent college graduates face and that is finding a job and paying off their college debt,” says Warren Mayberry, who has extensive experience and volunteer hours with the Texas FFA board,

nate the possibility of having debt from your education, why wouldn’t you?” Agriculturally involved youth have an extreme advantage in being awarded scholarship funds. There are a number of scholarships for students to apply and


compete for based on their involvement with the industry and/or their future agricultural studies. That being said, finding and applying for these scholarships can be a daunting task. Finding scholarships Besides the obvious Google search, many scholarships can be found by simply asking. Mayberry highly recommends youth to visit with – not only their agricultural science teacher and/or 4-H leader – but also anyone in the community. “Don’t be shy,” he says. “Mention to those you know that you are looking for scholarships. Let others help you in this process.” Additionally, high school counselors can be a wealth of information too. Mayberry points out, this is their area of expertise and they are paid to do it, so reach out to them for options.

Chris Stephens Chris Stephens has spent the last 20 years serving on various scholarship committees for youth beef breed associations, collegiate and non-profit youth organizations. His current role, with the Angus Foundation as the assistant director of development, puts him in charge of the breed’s scholarships.

“Youth should be proactive about applying,” he said. “It’s amazing how many scholarships are out there and how many are not applied for. Mainly because youth think [the scholarships] are out of their reach, but as long as you meet the necessary qualifications, there is no reason to not apply.” Stephens recommends youth find and search for scholarships that align with their own strengths – be it academics, extracurricular activities, volunteering, work experience or leadership. “Seek help from others who have already gone through this process too,” he adds. “Also, ask for direction from those who are in a leadership role within an organization that offers scholarships.” In the spirit of asking around and seeking out scholarships, call the major livestock shows and ask about their scholarship programs. Find community focused organizations and non-profits, and see what they are offering in terms of scholarships. Once you have selected your college and field of study, Mayberry encourages youth to call the school and visit with the career counselors, who again are well trained to be aware of scholarship opportunities. Knowing your intended career path will also open opportunities to find scholarships specific to the field of study, be it animal science or agricultural engineering and so forth. Laura Wilder serves as the executive director for the Idaho FFA Foundation and manages their scholarship program from

Laura Wilder start to finish. She has presented workshops to FFA youth at the state and local level and is the mom of two very successful scholarship recipients, who have or are completing their Master’s degree mostly without debt, due in large part to scholarships. Wilder encourages youth to contact organizations and companies they or their families work with or do business. These could include county and state Farm Bureaus, local, state and national breed and commodity organizations, irrigation and power companies, grower organizations and cooperatives like Farm Credit Services. Not all agricultural scholarships have to stem from a career in the show ring. Many judging, public speaking and agricultural mechanic contests award scholarship money to winners. “What I love about this is that youth who aren’t able to show livestock for whatever reason can still receive a schol-

arship from our industry,” Mayberry says. Wilder points out that agriculturally involved students make great candidates for non-agricultural scholarships due to their leadership and community activities. She experienced this first hand with her two children being successful in agricultural and non-agricultural scholarships. “Some examples of these scholarships that should not be overlooked are offered through the local mayor’s office, state board of education, local banks, civic and Brett Wilder receiving the Meridian FFA Muller Family Scholarship at Meridian FFA Banquet.

they are going to pay for college, but they should be. Sophomores should begin building a résumé or a comprehensive list of activities and achievements, and update this list regularly. A good place to start is pulling information from 4-H and FFA record books.”

“The key to success is organization early in the game,” Wilder pointed out. “Most high school sophomores aren’t thinking about plans after high school and how

Additionally, her children maintained a spreadsheet with information about the scholarship name, deadline, requirements and other important information to maintain timely submittals.

Sorghum Producers meeting. She was interning for a company at the meeting and she asked him if he remembered her. She went on to explain that four years ago Mayberry judged her in a public speaking contest, which awarded the winner “When it is time to apply for scholar- a $10,000 scholarship.

“She needed those extra years to improve her skills and confidence.” Applying Finding the scholarships is the first part of the scholarship journey and applying is not far behind. Following the scholarship guidelines carefully may seem obvious, but is inevitability a downfall for many in the process. In addition to ensuring that applicants meet the requirements of each scholarship, Stephens suggests youth be mindful of their letters of reference. “Make sure you are asking the right person to submit a letter,” Stephens


said. “Make sure the writer knows as much about your background as possible and be sure to follow up with a hand written thank you letter to those who wrote letters on your behalf.” When applying, be sure to pay attention to all of the guidelines. Stephens warned a number of great applicants get rejected because they submitted incomplete information, or did not read and fully execute the application. “Follow the rules and check your work,” Stephens said. “Proofread, proofread, proofread and then ask two qualified individuals to help proofread! No one likes mistakes.” When it comes to scholarship essays, Wilder suggests keeping typed document of the essays to make it easier to adjust an essay already completed and tailor it for another application. She too pointed out that spelling and grammar are important in written essays. Some scholarships go even further than a written application with an interview. The Guerra Family scholarship is based equally on the application and the interview. With the interview, he encourages youth to have good eye contact with all committee members, while being brief in responses, yet answering the questions. “Like a good Boy Scout, be prepared,” Guerra says. “Practice

at home, school or church with different people if there is an interview portion. Dress right too - boys should wear a tie. Be neat, polite, and smile. Be honest and give it your best shot. Be confident, sit up straight, have great eye contact, speak up and do not ramble. Above all, do not let your competition out prepare or out work you.” For Stephens, knowledge and poise are two things he is looking for in an interview. To interview someone who is knowledgeable and who can articulate their passion with poise is going to rise to the top he said. A desirable recipient After everything is submitted and the decision lies with the scholarship committee, applicants can perhaps rest easy knowing what the scholarship panel in this story is looking for; and that is a wellrounded candidate. It’s not always about the best grades or the most leadership opportunities, but the applicant who has shown they can be responsible by managing various roles and their academics. “We are looking for students that want to make something of themselves, are mature in their thinking and ready to take the next step,” Guerra said. “We like a student that has a balance of good grades- preferably with some college credits, extracurricular activities, volunteer service and some work experience.

Carlos X. Guerra It’s always great to see students with a great work ethic and goals. I like seeing a plan on how to make those goals happen, that shows determination.” A strong work ethic, participation, honesty, integrity and goal setting are qualities judges are looking for as they read and study applications. How do applicants convey this? Utilize storytelling and be prepared, both in written and interview form, to give specific examples and stories that point back to these qualities. Mayberry suggests sharing in a narrative, not bullet points, regardless if it is the written or interview portion. Focused storytelling is important as you try and present yourself to a scholarship committee and the best way for them to get to know you is through real

examples that highlight your character. Guerra’s goal with each interview is that the youth leave the room with more hope, knowledge, experience and confidence. “Interviews give us an opportunity to get to know the applicant better, as many times the top applicants on paper are not at the top after the interview,” he stated. “Sometimes those with less extracurricular activities and lower grades rise to the top once the panel gets to know why.”

Laura Wilder’s TIPS & TRICKS for Scholarship Hunting

- Get organized early in the game. - Build a comprehensive and detailed résumé with everything on it and update it regularly, so information is readily available for completing applications. Continue to build your résumé as much as possible, especially in the areas of leadership, community service and career skills. - Make a scholarship spreadsheet with the scholarship name, due date, if a transcript is needed, how many letters of recommendation are needed and any other important requirements. - Use some type of organizer like a portable file box to organize applications, transcripts, test scores, recommendation letters, dual credit records, certificates, news clippings, photos, college information and anything else that may be needed. - The sheer volume of scholarship opportunities and the work to complete the applications can become overwhelming. Order plenty of transcripts early and ask for letters of recommendation early. It is best to complete applications in due date order. You will get tired of applications – don’t stop and don’t give up. - This may seem basic but read and follow directions exactly. It’s surprising how many applicants don’t do this. Submit everything requested in the order it is listed. Do not send anything that was not asked for.

120 June/July 2017 • theshowcircuit.com

- Pay attention to how you mail the application. Do not fold it up and mail it in a small envelope, mail in a large envelope, unfolded. Be sure to apply the correct amount of postage to avoid having the scholarship committee being asked to fork over the cost. When this happens, applications can be sent back by the post office and due dates are missed. - Meet deadlines by ensuring the applications are received by deadline or postmarked by deadline. - Take ACT and SAT tests early in the junior year and take them more than once. Test scores can make a huge difference in scholarship success so take these tests seriously and prepare. Take advantage of study websites, tutoring and materials; many of these resources are free. - Pay attention to details and proofread. Have someone else proofread your application if possible. - Treat scholarship “hunting” like a job. Yes, it may take a significant amount of time to complete an application, but if you get the scholarship it is time well spent and a much higher return than working a low wage job. - Make sure you have a nice headshot photo available to use with applications where requested. When taking seniors photos many photographers like to be creative and artistic. Be sure to ask for a business headshot photo you can use.
