Teen Shemozzle Events & Entry Form

TEEN SHEMOZZLE™ in association with Wanganui Collegiate School



Do you have stamina, courage, mental and physical ability to compete in the Teen Shemozzle?  A cross country endurance race sure to test your ability, skills and strength in every way possible over, under, through and down obstacles.  The exact course is kept a secret until race day.  But we can tell you that you will be required to go down the mud slide - which most probably means you will have to run uphill at some point, eat a delectable delight and you most probably wont finish the race dry.  Get your mates together and enter as a School Team as well as an individual or if you belong to a Teen Ag Club through Young Farmers, enter your team and get training.  Give it a go!  Every competitor to finish the race will receive a 'doggie bag' full of goodies and a free Shemozzle t-shirt.

Teen Ag Shield or Inter-School Challenge

When you fill in your entry form you will be asked to select one either Teen Ag or Inter-Schools Challenge. You will select Teen Ag Shield if you are a  MEMBER of a Teen Ag Club within your school.  This means you are a part of Young Farmers and will compete for the Teen Ag Shield as a team.  There will usually be more than one of you so get your club mates to enter so you can form a Team from your Teen Ag Club.

If you DO NOT belong to a Teen Ag Club, you will select School Challenge.  This means you will be competing for the Schools Challenge prize along with your school team mates.  So get a group together and enter - the more you have from your school, the more chances you have of winning it.

You cannot enter Teen Ag Challenge AND Inter-School Challenge.  If you need help determining which one please email us at

All competitors also compete as an individual in the race.
