Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo awards more than $1 million to Texas FFA members


The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo awarded 70 Texas FFA members with four-year, $15,000 college scholarships totaling $1,050,000 during the Texas FFA State Convention in Dallas.

FFA scholarships are just one facet of the Show's educational program. In 2009, the Show committed more than $15.9 million to scholarships, research, endowments, calf scramble participants and junior show exhibitors. Also included is support of the Rodeo Institute for Teacher Excellence, School Art participants, and other educational and youth programs.

A scholarship evaluation committee, chosen by Texas FFA officials, and consisting of agricultural science teachers representing the 10 FFA areas in Texas, evaluates applicants on the criteria of academic ability, FFA involvement and achievement, financial need, and leadership.

Since its beginning in 1932, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has contributed more than $235 million to the youth of Texas.

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is a 501(c)(3) charity that benefits youth, supports education, and facilitates better agricultural practices through exhibitions and presentation.

The 2010 Show will run March 2 to 21. For more information, visit www.rodeohouston.com.
