A member of the NJAA since 1994, Hannah has also been an active member of the Tennessee Junior Angus Association. She has served as the historian for the Tennessee juniors and is the reigning Angus queen. At the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), she has participated in the poster and quiz bowl contests.

The Bronze and Silver Awards are the first two levels of the NJAA Recognition Program that began in 1972. Junior Angus breeders must apply for the awards and then meet point requirements in many areas of participation before receiving the honors. Applicants are evaluated in areas of junior Angus association activities and leadership, participation in showmanship, contests and shows, using performance testing to improve their herd and their progress in producing and merchandising Angus cattle.
The NJAA promotes the involvement of young people in raising Angus cattle, while also providing leadership and self-development opportunities for nearly 8,000 active members nationwide.
