Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO) --- A year's worth of hard work came to an end today for many mesa county 4-H and FFA students.

Competitors who work with each species were chosen as the top showmen in their group and then entered into the round robin event where they get to work with all of the species and impress judges with their skill and poise.

"This is an opportunity for them to showcase not only their projects but the life skills that they learn in the program," says Round Robin Superintendent, Janie VanWinkle. "The round robin is actually judging the kids on their presentation of their animal so it's a great learning experience."

The winners of this year's round robin were Tyler Draper for the junior division, his sister, Shyanne Draper, from the intermediate division and Sarah Foss from the senior division who narrowly beat our her own sister for first place.

Congratulations to this years winners and to all of the competitors.
