The 2021 FINAL POINT REPORT is posted here. Check it out to see who placed in the TOP TEN in each division! Congratulations to all of the Top Ten Division and Overall Winners and to all our members who worked hard to achieve their goals!
2021 was the final year of the California Junior Livestock Association. It has been a great run filled with so many memorable times and wonderful people! The CJLA was the vision of Heidi Beljean. She had started the Pacific Showcase magazine when the junior livestock show scene was starting to take off. Out-of-state influences were just starting to head this way and jackpots were getting started. The CJLA was Heidi’s vision to organize jackpots in California and to reward junior exhibitors for their hard work and achievements. The idea took off and kids joined and shows sanctioned! In just a few short years almost every jackpot in the state was a point show and the CJLA had an annual membership of over 300 kids. The CJLA became the premier junior livestock organization in California and the West and many amazing kids grew up in the CJLA.
It is truly a testament to Heidi’s love of this industry and love for the families and kids who love to raise and show animals that the CJLA became as great as it has! Many of you know Heidi and some of you have not met her in person, but it is our hope that you will recognize the important role she played in the journey to what is available to our youth today. Her dedication to the Pacific Showcase magazine and to the CJLA has been truly amazing!
In thanking Heidi, the CJLA also has to say thank you to every one of the shows who stepped up and sanctioned their events. The time and hard work to put on any jackpot show cannot be measured in hours but it can be measured in commitment, and our shows have gone above and beyond year after year to provide opportunities for youth to compete with their animals.
And our sponsors and donors – without you we could not have done this! Because of you we have been able to give so many awards to honor the efforts of our entire membership each year. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank You!
We are preparing for the final presentation of awards on February 19th, 2022 during the Western Bonanza Jr Livestock Show. At that time, we will be giving out both the 2020 and 2021 awards.
