***Judges Stipend Program***

The Maryland Dairy Goat Association offers one annual $500 stipend to either a first-time prospective ADGA judge or a current apprentice judge. In return, if the selected individual becomes a licensed judge, he or she agrees to judge two MDGA shows within the following two calendar years and waive his or her judging fee. Transportation and housing costs will be reimbursed by MDGA up to $500 as itemized in the expense report. Applications for this stipend must be received by April 15th. All candidates will be notified on or before May 1st as to whether they have been selected to receive the stipend for that year. The stipend will be awarded as a check made payable to the recipient after a training conference receipt is received by MDGA indicating that the candidate has attended and completed the Judges Training course.
