Today, individuals, businesses and foundations pledge monetary donations towards scholarships, cash awards and prizes for youth exhibitors thorough establishing buying groups for the Aksarben Purple Ribbon Auction. Each buying group is unique with a common goal of funding the purchase of a single or multiple auction lots. The cash prize is a way for the exhibitor to recoup the costs of production for his/her animal. The scholarship is an award that helps them continue their higher education.

Nova Tech, MultiMin USA, HLG, Pathway Bank and Gideon Farms/Show Pigs
Champion Market Beef, $18,000
Overall Market Goat, $1,750
