The Herdsman Award is named after the late George Blackburn, a former Stephens County Extension Agent, said Glenda Knight, who served as the co-chairman of the Showmanship Division for the SCJLS.

To be a herdsman applicant, the stock show exhibitors had to sign up to participate and then write an  essay about their stock show project, complete their record book and be interviewed by a committee. The winners received belt buckles.
