Become a Sponsor

The Aksarben Stock Show has grown and thrived, continuing a 92-year commitment to agricultural youth education and ensuring that future generations understand Agriculture’s impact on our Heartland economy and community. Our sponsors are at the core of our success and ability to award over $171,000 in scholarships and cash prizes in 2018.

We welcome you to get involved with sponsoring the 92nd Aksarben Stock Show Sept. 26-29, 2019 in Grand Island, Nebraska. There are many ways to financially contribute to the advancement of agricultural youth education from sponsoring awards, scholarships, cash prizes to naming rights on signature events during the stock show.

The Aksarben Stock Show is produced and managed by Nebraska State Fair. We works individually with all our generous corporate partners, event sponsors, philanthropic donors, auction buying groups and advertisers to ensure packages are tailored to meet their needs.

Exciting Change in 2018

Our new partnership with Nebraska State Fair and relocation of the Aksarben Stock Show to Grand Island (Fonner Park/Nebraska State Fairgrounds) allows us to expand our impact statewide and benefit even more youth.

With your ongoing support, we will:

  • Provide everyone from youth exhibitors to spectators with world-class facilities and proper space to improve on what is already the premier livestock show in the region.
  • Offer better engagement with student exhibitors, scholarship recipients and their families.
  • Reduce underwriting and overhead costs, increasing profitability and scholarship dollars.
