Written by: Callie Hicks, Vice President

IMG_7347The Heartland regional is a staple for many in the Midwest. Generations of families have shown at Heartland which makes it an annual trip for most. This year the Heartland regional show took place in Council Bluffs, IA. The family atmosphere was contagious and made me feel right at home. On the first day, following check in, the junior activities at this regional show included games of partner balloon pop, blob, pie a director, and the kids overall favorite the water balloon fight.IMG_7376

Following the Stock Show U clinic heartland provided everyone with a delicious meal thanks to their sponsors. In addition to the meal, a benefit auction was held to raise money for the juniors of the Heartland IMG_7357Association. On a long and hot show day the juniors were all smiles from start to finish. Watching the parents ringside coach their children and all the good jobs that were given by other showmen shows the encouragement and sportsmanship that takes place at this regional. The Heartland regional is a staple for many and for others it’s the start of a tradition.
