Entries are open for the American Angus Auxiliary-sponsored 41st All-American Certified Angus Beef® Cook-Off Contest. All interested contestants must enter by May 25. The contest will be held July 2 at the 2024 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) in Madison, Wis.

The Cook-Off Contest provides an opportunity for National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) members to display their knowledge of the beef industry and skills in the kitchen while enjoying friendly competition with fellow participants. All contestants must be members of the NJAA and each team must consist of two to six members of a state junior Angus association.

“We are excited to host and celebrate the 41st All-American Certified Angus Beef® Cook-Off Contest, which serves as the oldest NJAS educational contest,” said Anne Lampe, American Angus Auxiliary beef education committee co-chair. “I am always amazed at the creative ways NJAA members put recipes, presentations and skits together to educate consumers about Certified Angus Beef®.”

This annual contest encourages NJAA members from each state to gather their best recipes, prepare a Certified Angus Beef® beef dish and perform a skit to entertain and educate the audience. The cuts selected for this year’s contest are as follows: the steak division is Baseball Steak (Sirloin), the roast division is Chuck Flap and the other category is Frankfurters.

The contest consists of three age categories: 8-13, 14-17 and 18-21. All ages will be determined as of January 1. Mixed teams may be entered but will be classified by the oldest member of the team. The contest will be judged by a panel of three judges. Winners in showmanship, recipe and overall excellence will be awarded special prizes.

Rules and the online entry form are available on For contest questions contact Anne Lampe at 620-874-4273 or or Anne Patton Schubert at 502-477-2663.
