HOUSTON — The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo awarded 70 Texas 4-H members with four-year, $16,000 scholarships totaling $1,120,000 during the Texas 4-H Roundup in College Station, Texas, June 13.

As one of the oldest Show scholarship programs, more than 2,000 scholarships have been awarded to Texas 4-H members since the Show’s first major educational commitment in 1957.

These scholarships are just part of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s more than $16 million annual commitment to scholarships, research, endowments, calf scramble participants and junior show exhibitors. Also included is support of the Rodeo Institute for Teacher Excellence™, School Art participants, and other educational and youth programs.  

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is a 501(c)(3) charity that benefits youth, supports education, and facilitates better agricultural practices through exhibitions and presentation. Since its beginning in 1932, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has committed more than $265 million to the youth of Texas.

The 2012 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo will run Feb. 28 – March 18. For more information, visit www.rodeohouston.com.
