The 2015 Holstein Association USA Online Junior Essay contest is divided into three age divisions, each with its own topic and page limits.

Any National Junior Holstein member is eligible to compete. Here are the topics for this year’s contest:

Junior (ages 9-13 as of January 1): What is your favorite dairy product and how would you promote your love for this product to the public to help entice them to purchase it in the future?

Intermediate (ages 14-17): If you could have dinner with any Holstein breeder past or present who would you choose and why?

Senior (ages 18-21): How would you explain to someone the difference between a Registered Holstein animal and a black and white cow not identified with Holstein Association USA?

Prizes will be awarded to the top three essays in each age division. One Grand Prize winner will receive a Kindle Fire tablet. Entries must be received by April 1, 2015.
