Angus Youth is calling for nominations for the 2023 Stewart Award, encouraging members to put forward a person they know that has dedicated themselves to the ongoing development of the Angus Youth Program.
The Stewart Award (previously named the Angus Youth Helper of the Year Award) was commissioned in 2001 to recognise a person that has volunteered a large amount of time to the Angus Youth program.
The award is named after Bruce and Pat Stewart of Dunlop Park Angus, Tasmania, who over many years have contributed selflessly to the Angus Youth program. Each year Bruce and Pat travelled to Wodonga to assist with the running Angus Youth National Judging Competition. They have also worked tirelessly behind the scenes, picking lunches up, running people to and from transport depots, helped with the distribution and collection of place and question cards during animal judging and always were there to provide a helping hand and support or guidance to the Angus Youth program.
At the conclusion of each year, the current Angus Youth Consultative Committee select the recipient/s of the Stewart based on their outstanding contribution to the Angus Youth program.
“Without the support of dedicated and generous people, the Angus Youth program would not be able to provide the opportunities to emerging members of the beef industry that we have been able to over the years,” said Angus Australia Extension Manager Jake Phillips.
“If you recognise a person who has gone above and beyond to support the Angus Youth Program, we call upon you to nominate them for the Stewart Award.”
The most recent awardees of the Stewart Award were Lyn Frecklington of Hollywood Angus and Peter Collins from Merridale Angus, with the presentation made at the Zoetis Angus National Conference Gala Dinner.
