PaSRBA and Promotion Involvement
One of the main roles of royalty in Pennsylvania is promoting rabbit and cavy activities to both, people already involved and to the general public. Keeping PaSRBA alive and growing requires bringing in new members and keeping our current ones enthusiastic. As part of the royalty score, you will receive points for activities in the past year that contribute to that goal. We realize that you can’t be everywhere, so there are many different areas you can earn points and you don’t have to attend everything to get the maximum points in this section.
To acknowledge excellence and dedication among PaSRBA youth members in attendance at the State Convention and to allow these members to demonstrate a working knowledge of the rabbit and cavy industry. To explore critical thinking skills, demonstrate personal initiative and provide problem-solving, decision-making and goal-setting activities for these youth members. Royalty winners are expected to represent PASRBA for the year. Please see the expectations section.
PASRBA will award up to three education scholarships of $500 each. Scholarship proceeds may be used to further education at a university/college/school where a diploma, certificate or license will be issued upon completion of the program of study.
To acknowledge excellence of management style by PaSRBA youth members in the areas of housing and equipment, feeding and animal care, disease control, record keeping, and breeding and genetics for the care and production of rabbits and/or cavies.
