        Beef Ambassadors To Compete In New Orleans, Oct. 18-20

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (Aug. 15, 2007) - Students from 25 states will compete for cash awards and college scholarships at the The National Beef Ambassador Competition, Oct. 18-20, at the Radisson New Orleans Airport Hotel in New Orleans, La. The $5,000 cash awards are sponsored exclusively by Tyson Foods, Inc.  Three winners will also receive scholarship awards sponsored by the American National CattleWomen Foundation, Inc. 

The National Beef Ambassador Program (NBAP) selects a team of five enthusiastic young adults, who spend the year telling the beef production story to consumers and students across the country.   The program is funded in part by America’s beef producers through the Beef Checkoff Program and is managed by American National CattleWomen, Inc. (ANCW) on behalf of the Cattlemen’s Beef Board.  

Competition is based on the contestants’ ability to present a speech geared toward consumers regarding beef’s nutrition, quality and production.  Contestants receive extensive media training while at the competition and are also judged on their performances in media interviews.  

For registration and more information, visit For questions regarding the National Beef Ambassador Program or this event, please contact Carol Abrahamzon at or 507-724-3905.   



American National CattleWomen, Inc. is a trade association of America’s affiliated CattleWomen, with the primary focus of promotion and consumer education regarding beef as a safe and nutritious food, and the production of beef cattle as an industry.
