The first step is to sign up for FDSC 3545: Introduction to Meat Judging. This course is offered in the fall semester. For enrollment assistance contact Sierra Jepsen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After being enrolled in the judging class for one semester, you are eligible to be selected as a member of the competitive team that travels to national contests the following year.
The UW Meat Judging Team does not give individual scholarships. All scholarships are academic based and are awarded through the Brand of Excellence Scholarship Program through the College of Agriculture. For information please contact Kerry Casper at (307) 766-3046 or email@example.com.
A student is eligible to compete at the national contests if they have been enrolled
at UW for at least one semester and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.25. You
have one calendar year of competitive eligibility for meat judging, which starts in
January and ends in that same year. A normal judging career consists of one semester
of class-work in the fall followed by practice and traveling in the spring and fall
of the following year. This in no way affects eligibility for any other judging teams
Meat Judging is open to all students enrolled at UW. We are looking for hard-working people with a competitive attitude and the willingness and desire to learn more about the meat industry.
