Silver Pitcher Award

Our oldest continuous program, the prestigious Silver Pitcher award presentation started in 1953 at the Chicago International Stock Show. A silver pitcher was presented to honor a young lady excelling in showring achievements. The award presentation was moved to the North American Livestock Exposition in 1975 and 1976 before finding its current home at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS). In 1993, the recognition expanded to include young men.
