Well-known local celebrities from all over Schuylkill County have accepted the challenge of competing in our first annual Celebrity Livestock Obstacle Course. The contest, sure to receive a lot of media attention, will be held on Tuesday, July 28 at 6:30 PM in the Agricultural Arena at the Schuylkill County Fair.
The celebrities, without dropping any names, come from the news media, political arena and agricultural industry. Although there are some contestants with agricultural backgrounds, it can be safely said that none of them have worked in the livestock end of the industry. This is sure to be a challenge for all of the contestants!
The celebrities will attempt, to the best of their ability, to take a livestock animal through a series of obstacles with dignity, grace and finesse. The celebrities will be coached and mentored by 4-H and FFA livestock exhibitors as they will also be up for the challenge of the obstacles laid out for them in the course. 4-H and FFA stand on the premise of “learning by doing” and the celebrities will have to learn from the youth exhibitors as they navigate the course.
The celebrities are up for the challenge and the event is sure to be filled with pure Ag-citement! You don’t want to miss this contest in the Ag Arena on Tuesday evening, July 28 at the Schuylkill County Fair. The contest will be starting promptly at 6:30 PM.
