Oklahoma Youth Expo is a huge livestock show that is open to all of Oklahoma. It is in Oklahoma City and is March 9th-20th. It started today with everyone just beginning to move their animals and equipment in. Every day there is something different going on. All species will show on a different day and some even multiple days. This is an extremely competitive and challenging show for all the students involved. The show typically has over 7,000 exhibitors from about 77 counties in Oklahoma. It also includes some scholarships and leadership training for youth in Oklahoma. The total amount of scholarship money they give at OYE is $2,192,250. That’s a lot! Most students will participate everyday in this for about two weeks and it really pays off for them in the end!
