|What is NEOLA:
NEOLA, North Eastern Oklahoma Lamb Association was
started to stimulate competition among 4-H and FFA
exhibitors, while also encouraging sportsmanship and
leadership. NEOLA offers a series of jackpot lamb shows and
gives prizes and awards to the top individual exhibitors of
club lambs throughout the course of a one-year period based
upon the total number of points accumulated within a given
NEOLA division. We currently have 5 shows each year
November through February.
The awards are given during the Tulsa State Fair.
|Who can show at NEOLA:
Academically eligible 4-H or FFA and peewee designated
showmen residing in the northeast portion of the State of
Oklahoma (counties included are Adair, Cherokee, Craig,

We have wrapped up another great year with a record number
of members. We will be awarding over 80 jackets to members
this year! Due to Tulsa State Fair moving around some show
times, we will have the awards Tuesday, September 30, 2014
following the show. We hope that this will be before 7 pm.
We will serve pizza again so pass the word.
On a side note: The board is working on the schedule, there
are a couple of conflicts this year, and they are doing their
best to accommodate as many as possible. The schedule will
be posted in 1-2 weeks.
Scholarship winners will be announced at the awards
meeting during Tulsa State Fair.
