On Sunday February 11, 2018, eighteen competitors met at the Grenfell Showground to take place in the Zone Junior Judging hoping to qualify for the finals at Sydney Royal Easter Show.

The competitors were judged in six categories – meat sheep, merino sheep, merino fleece, cattle, grain and fruit and vegetables.

The Henry Lawson High School was represented by students Tara Schaefer, Stephanie Davies, Hugo Fenton and Joshua Carpenter.

Stephanie placed third in the fleece judging and Hugo gained second place in the merino sheep judging.

Thank you to all the competitors, judges, volunteers and local farmers who lent their livestock for judging and congratulations to the place getters.
