SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Livestock Exposition Inc. (S.A.L.E.), a volunteer organization that emphasizes agriculture and education to develop the youth of Texas, has built a reputation for being one of the largest family friendly events in the state featuring livestock and horse shows, interactive exhibits and shows, Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association Rodeo action, carnival, and live entertainment. Additionally, S.A.L.E. has a direct influence on the lives of thousands of individuals pursuing a higher education.

This year, the San Antonio Livestock Exposition Inc. -- the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo -- has committed $11.3 million to educate Texas youth. This amount represents scholarships, grants, endowments, junior livestock auctions, a youth western art auction, calf scramble program, and show premiums paid to the youth of Texas. This year’s total giving represents a record commitment, topping 2012’s $10.1 million by more than $1 million. This brings the total amount the organization has committed since inception to $134.6 million. Keith Martin, executive director and CEO, made the announcement during the organization’s annual membership meeting May 14 at the Expo Hall of the Freeman Coliseum/AT&T Center grounds in San Antonio.

The 2014 San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo will be Feb. 6-23 at the Freeman Coliseum/AT&T Center grounds.
