The Sale of Champions recognizes the accomplishments of 12 young agriculturalists with their livestock projects: Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion steers, barrows, lambs, meat goats, pens of chickens and pens of rabbits from 4-H and FFA livestock shows.
Seventy percent of each animal’s auction price goes to the 4-H or
FFA member exhibiting the animal. Proceeds are usually somewhat
higher than current market prices. The remaining thirty percent goes
to the Youth in Agriculture Fund to provide agricultural youth with
leadership and personal growth opportunities through educational
programs, competitive events and scholarships. A total of 570
scholarships amounting to $558,000 have been awarded since 1992!
