by Andy Schwab

The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) is holding their 11th annual National Anthem Singing Contest, sponsored by Norbrook. After a months long selection process, four finalists have been chosen and one of them hails from a tiny town in north-central Montana. Anna Sponheim of Winifred, MT who helps on her family’s cattle and wheat farm and serves the industry as Program Manager at the Montana Beef Council, was selected as a top four finalist in the NCBA National Anthem Contest.

The winner of the contest will perform the “Star-Spangled Banner” at the Opening General Session of CattleCon24 and will receive round trip airfare to Orlando, Florida, a hotel room for three nights, free convention registration, plus a pair of boots, jeans and a shirt from Roper or Stetson.

Videos of the finalists are available for viewing and voting at beginning November 1. The public can vote for their favorite singer once per day per person through November 15, and the winner will be announced November 17.
