Digi-Star announces that the Hoyts of Lighthouse Rascals 4-H Club in Island City, Ore., have won the "Be a Digi-Star Champion" contest. Youth livestock exhibitors entered by posting a picture or 60-second video of their 2014 livestock project to Digi-Star's Facebook page:

The winning photo of Drake and Alyssa Hoyt and their market lambs received more than 1,200 likes and their prize choice was a Wrangler Jr.

"It is awesome! So far we've weighed six pigs, three sheep, three dogs and all the kids!" says Justin Hoyt, Drake and Alyssa's dad. "It transports easily in the back of my pickup, and it's nice it only needs two AA batteries to operate."

Recognizing that access to a scale often limits weighing livestock, a key measurement process, Digi-Star developed the "Be a Digi-Star Champion" contest. The contest, open to all youth under 21 exhibiting livestock during the 2014 show season, ran from May 1-June 1, 2014. Contest administrator Robin Starkenburg says, "The contest is a great opportunity for Digi-Star to connect with and show support to the future of our industry."
