            BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - WHOA held its third Academy Show of the season March 3 at the WKU Agriculture Expo in Bowling Green, Ky. With the cancellation of the Feb. 3 show due to weather conditions, this show served as a double point show with two judges marking cards. Each judge’s ties were announced separately and two sets of ribbons were presented in each class.
            Leah Boyd and Sherri Dietz Ward did an outstanding job judging the 82 entries that participated in Bowling Green. WHOA Academy Chairperson Harolene Willis made sure everyone had a great time. Steve Barbour sang the National Anthem and Rose Anstett, Sput Houchens, WHOA President David Pruett, Linda and Dan Starnes and Marcy Wilson volunteered their time to help at the show.
            The next WHOA Academy Show will be in Shelbyville at Waterfall Farms on March 10 at 10 am. The WHOA Academy Championship will be held March 24 at Calsonic arena in Shelbyville.
