ACBA Youth Program

Members are eligible to participate in Youth programs if they have not yet reached their 19th birthday by the end of Specialty.  All youth wanting to participate in the ACBA Youth Programs must be a member of the ACBA. 

The ACBA Youth Royalty Contests are conducted at the ACBA Specialty Show which consists of a written test, an oral interview, showmanship (for the younger classes) and judging (for the older classes) as conducted by the ACBA Youth Committee.
