The contest, sure to get a lot of media coverage, will be held on Tuesday, August 2 at 6:30PM in the Agricultural Arena during the 2016 Schuylkill County Fair. The celebrities, without dropping any names, come from the news media, political arena and agricultural industry.

The celebrities will have to, to the best of their ability, take a livestock animal through a series of obstacles with dignity, grace and finesse. Of course the celebrities will be coached 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 is all about learning by doing and the Celebrities will have to learn from the youth exhibitors as they do the course.
