State Fair of Texas Youth Livestock Auction and Scholarship FundA contribution to the State Fair of Texas Youth Livestock Auction and Scholarship Fund fully benefits Texas scholars. The State Fair of Texas, as an organization, pays for 100% of all associated expenses, overhead, administration and costs. Your investment directly benefits Texas high school seniors from across the state.
The State Fair of Texas celebrates all things Texan by promoting agriculture, education, and community involvement through quality entertainment in a family-friendly environment. Since its establishment in 1992, the Fair's Youth Scholarship Program has awarded college scholarships to more than 2700 students. In 2019, 111 Youth Livestock Scholarship awards were presented to high school seniors from across the state who exhibited their 4-H or FFA projects at the State Fair of Texas. Livestock scholars pursue degrees for a future in agriculture. An additional 85 awards were presented in 2019 to seniors from our six, neighboring inner-city Dallas high schools. All State Fair scholars attend Texas colleges and universities.
As a historic institution that aims to celebrate all aspects of the Lone Star State, the Fair recognizes the wide range of colleges and universities our state has to offer, as well as the importance of being able to attend college. With an unlimited number of top-notch colleges around the state, the Fair strives to enable all students with the opportunity to attend one of these schools and pursue their dreams. Donate
