This year, the San Antonio Livestock Exposition Inc. (S.A.L.E.) has committed $11.8 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 2013’s $11.3 million by over a half million dollars. This brings the total amount the organization has committed since inception to $147.9 million.
