Outlying Canterbury Primary Schools are given the opportunity to compete in livestock judging, similar to what they would experience at an A&P Show. To qualify for the Championships, entrants had to have attended a school pet day within their region.
Students are judged across three sections: Care and Attention, Leading and Handling and their Project Books. The annual event is held at Canterbury Agricultural Park, Christchurch.
TDM Events provides event management and administration services for the annual event.
