of the
2008 Skillathon

held at the
ALSA Grand National Show Of Champions


Open to all youth, the second annual Youth Lama Skillathon was held at the 2008 ALSA Grand National Show Of Champions.  No entry fee was required and generous cash prizes, thanks to our generous sponsors, were awarded through 6th place of each age division with 1st place being $100.00.  Our generous sponsors made this event possible.  Over 75 youth participated in the Youth Skillathon and the results were extremely impressing.  Tiebreakers had to be referred to in many instances in order to calculate our list of winners. 
Many Thanks to Our 2008 Skillathon Sponsors!

The Skillathon consisted of four individual stations with various challenges suited for each age level.  A list of study helps were posted on the ALSA website in advance of the event.  Participants rotated between each of these stations and completed the challenges on all aspects of llamas and alpacas - care, farm management, fiber, training, and medical issues.  The stations included: 
1.  External Parts Identification   2.  Equipment Identification and Use
3.  General Herd Management  4.  Problem Solving On The Farm  

Congratulations to Our 2008 Winners!
