World Pork Expo to feature new contest for young pork enthusiasts

The National Pork Producers Council is excited to launch a new opportunity for young pork enthusiasts at this year’s World Pork Expo.

The Young Pork Advocates Issues Meet is a competitive speaking event for young people aged 17-22. Through preparatory research, creative problem solving, collaborative discussion, and the drafting of mock motions, competitors will dive deep into current pork industry issues and gain an understanding of the NPPC producer-led policy development process.

Competitors will engage in open dialogue surrounding a prompted industry issue and bring forth logical and creative solutions. Ultimately, these solutions will be translated into mock motions, simulating the NPPC committee structure.

The contest will occur over both days of the World Pork Expo at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. Rounds 1 and 2 will take place on the morning of Wednesday, June 5, and the Final Four Round will take place on the Bill Riley Stage immediately before the concert on the evening of Thursday, June 6.
