CA Beef Ambassador

This Saturday was the 2014 California Beef Ambassador competition and marked the end of my term as California Beef Ambassador. The contest was held at the Emma Prusch Farm Park in San Jose, California. There were a record number of contestants, with 15 juniors and 11 seniors competing. After a long day of issue response, consumer demonstration, and media interview, the contestants had the pleasure of attending a media training lead by CA Beef Council’s communications representative, Jill Scoefield, and finally the winners were announced. The new 2014 California Beef Ambassador is Ms. Jillian Casaca (after winning and/or tying for first in all three parts of the competition), and she will take my place as the face of California Beef. The junior winner was Shane Stubblefield of Kern County, CA. The contest was so encouraging and seeing all the up-and-coming advocates made me very proud. Congratulations Jillian and Shane, and here’s to another year of advocation and beef!
