67th Annual Southeastern Livestock Exposition Rodeo Promotes Youth Development in Agriculture

Share this:

Poarch Band of Creek Indians (PBCI) and Wind Creek Hospitality are once again supporting the Southeastern Livestock Exposition’s (SLE) mission to drive youth involvement in agriculture. Collectively, they are donating a total of $150,000 to support the vital cause.

Through the Poarch Band of Creek Indians’ donation, scholarships are provided for two students ages 9-18 in every county in the state. The scholarships are designed to recognize and reward youth who are active participants in Alabama’s beef industry, as well as to support the Alabama Junior Livestock Expo.

The Southeastern Livestock Exposition is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving farming and ranching by creating opportunities for youth through rodeos, livestock competitions, community activities, and educational events.

This year, the 67th Annual Southeastern Livestock Exposition Rodeo is set for March 15-17 in Montgomery with Wind Creek Hospitality as title sponsor. The event welcomes hundreds of exhibitors and animal entries for the rodeo’s Junior Beef, Swine, and Dairy expos.

Proceeds from the annual rodeo pour back into the state of Alabama’s youth through the support of scholarships, livestock shows, livestock judging contests, FFA Foundation scholarships, Alabama 4-H, the Children’s Miracle Network, youth rodeo associations, and more.

“We are thrilled to continue supporting the SLE’s important mission,” said Keith Martin, Poarch Band of Creek Indians Tribal Council Member. “Engaging youth about the fundamental role of livestock and agriculture is critical for the entire state, and we are thrilled to play a role in helping further their interest and development.”
