Livestock Show Continued from pg. 1C you, always helping if you have questions," she said. Financial support for youth that participate in the show is what has grown significantly over the years, Dodd said. Within auctions held at the show, the HCLSE has sold over $600,000 per year, with 100 per- cent of the money go- ing back to the partici- pants. Funds then go to the exhibi- tors, who then use the money for additional expenses for a project. Many, however, opt to place a portion of their win- nings away for "college or higher education," • Dodd said. Grace "It's something for you to work for every single day ... It's something beneficial you can take with you to college." - Grace Baxter, duchess in the queen's court Baxter, a member of the Dripping Springs FFA and a duchess in the queen's court, said there are a variety of scholarship op- portunities, both through FFA and 4-H, as well as through the shows that help with college. But Dodd said the event goes beyond the image of showing live- stock. For Dodd, it's help- ing the next generation learn "life skills they can take on" for their future endeavors, regardless if it involves agriculture or livestock. Baxter said learning about work ethic, not only in "the big picture" but also on a day-to-day basis, was one of many skills learned through participating in the show. Other skills leamed are leadership, responsibility, time-management and communication. "It's something for you to work for every single day," Baxter said. "It's something ben- eficial you can take with you to college." Outreach is also another component for the HCI E. Dodd said the Queen's court plays a primary role in getting the word out for the show. FFA and 4-H programs help with outreach by volunteering during events such as the Buda Trail of Lights. Baxter said she and her sis- ter co-founded "Center of the Plate," which is a non-profit organization that helps families in need. "It also shows kids how much livestock, animals and agriculture in general can help feed so many people and have a benefi- cial impact," Baxter said. For Dodd, the show is also a community event, one that allows today's youth to interact with their neighbors. While he hopes passing the show is a tradition that follows generations of families, working to get new involvement is also important. "The more we can get them involved, the better off those kids will be," Dodd said.
