Midwest Junior Auctioneer Championship! After several years of offering the Kids Exhibition Auction, we recognize that some of these kids are tough competitors! So this year, we are offering two segments of bid calling for the kids. The Midwest Junior Auctioneer Championship is for kids ages 12-17. They will be judged on the same criteria as the adults, but they don’t have to wear a hat (unless they want to!). Placings will be awarded to the top 3 and a ribbon for all entrants.
We haven’t forgot about the littles! Back by popular demand is the Kids Exhibition Auction for the 11 and under crowd! Bring your young auctioneers and have them sell items they have brought during the fun auction. No judging for this group, just lots of fun, encouragement and goating grandpa into bidding high and often!
This portion of the event is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Each contestant will take home an award to memorialize their achievement. Please sign your young auctioneers up on the registration form for the MJAC as well as the kids exhibition auction so we have enough awards for everyone.
