Key Conference

Knowledge Empowers Youth (KEY) Conference is an opportunity where juniors ages 14 – 21 have the ability to not only develop leadership skills that can be used in their future, but also a place where they are able to gain new friendships, experience a new college campus and expand their knowledge on the current issues of the agricultural industry. The weekend event is held in the summer at a different major university each year to give youth a feel for a college setting and to experience what that college offers. Participation is not limited to Shorthorn juniors; anyone interested in the agricultural industry is encouraged to attend!

The AJSA is partnering with the American Gelbvieh Junior Association and the American Junior Simmental Association to bring a joint leadership conference that will take place every other year (even years). Contact for questions.


The next Summit Conference will be in 2020 in Washington, D.C. Stay tuned for more information about the 2020 Summit!!!
