NCBA Holds National Anthem Contest
Oh, say, can you sing? Are you 18 or younger and related to National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), American National Cattlewomen (ANCW) or Cattlemen’s Beef Board (CBB)? If so, you could win terrific prizes at the 2014 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show in Nashville, Tenn., Feb. 4-7. NCBA is hosting its first annual National Anthem Singing Contest to determine the singer of the Star Spangled Banner at the 2014 Opening General Session Tuesday, Feb. 4, and at the Grand Ole Opry House during the Cowboy’s Night at the Opry II.
The winner of the contest will receive round-trip airfare for two to Nashville, a hotel room for three nights at the Gaylord, free registration for two to the convention and western wear from Roper and Stetson! The deadline for entry is Nov. 1, and the top four finalists will be selected by Nov. 15. Online voting will take place to determine the winner until Dec. 13, with the winner announced on Dec. 20.
“The 2014 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show is the place to be in February. The singing of the Star Spangled Banner is an important part of the event as we kick off the convention, not to mention the once in a lifetime opportunity to sing at the Grand Ole Opry” said NCBA President Scott George. “I encourage all talented youth who are 18 or younger and related to a member of NCBA, ANCW or CBB to submit an entry for this contest.”
