Sponsorship Opportunities

The Aksarben Stock Show has grown and thrived, continuing a 95-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 produce a youth livestock show annually and award scholarships and cash prizes. 2021 ushered in a new opportunity for the Aksarben Stock Show with the first-ever Grand Drive. Fifty two exhibitors received $115,000 provided in fifty percent in cash premiums and fifty percent in scholarship funds. In 2019, 36 scholarships were provided to youth representing 10 states from the heartland. In 2018, over $171,000 was awarded via the Aksarben Purple Ribbon Scholarship auction.

There are several ways to financially support agricultural youth across the heartland of America. Our generous sponsors choose different methods from making a donation, funding scholarships, sponsoring awards and being corporate partners.
