Membership Kit: After you have enrolled as a Youth Member, you will receive a digital membership kit which includes educational brochures, activities and booklets. Note: Printed copies of membership kit are available on request.

Youth Activity Committee: EKPA seeks youth interested in coordinating youth-centered activities at EKPA events. We believe that youth voice is central to learning and want you to be involved! Any EKPA member may volunteer for a position on this committee.

Youth Showmanship: EKPA will offer youth showmanship opportunities at any show events it may hold and will recognize youth exhibitors accordingly. EKPA will also sponsor a limited amount of showmanship awards at county fairs or other locations where youth are showing Kunekune pigs. Please contact the directors for more information.

Youth Representative Contest: The Youth Representative Contest is open to any youth 15-18 years of age. The contestants will be evaluated on personality, knowledge, leadership and experience with Kunekune pigs. Youth selected to be the EKPA representative will serve as an EKPA ambassador at selected events promoting Kunekunes and our organization.

The EKPA is committed to offering opportunities to ALL youth, regardless of their ability to pay membership fees. Please contact us if you have a youth interested in participating with EKPA for whom paying the fee may be a barrier.
