The State Fair of Texas is passionate about its mission to promote agricultural education.
The State Fair of Texas Youth Livestock Auction and Scholarship Program promotes Texas youth. Volunteer committees representing the greater Dallas business community join in to bolster efforts. Through the annual State Fair of Texas and other special fundraising events throughout the year, the Fair was able to award more than $1.2 million in college scholarships to Texas youth in 2016. Since 1992, the State Fair of Texas has awarded more than $23 million in auction awards and scholarships to youth throughout the Lone Star State.
