Florida State Fair Foundation Launches New Website

The Florida State Fair launched a new website to ring in the new year of 2018. The new site highlights the many projects and contributions of the Foundation and most importantly provides timely information to patrons and donors with secure online giving options. The site was developed The Market Place, owned by a former fair exhibitor that benefited from the leadership skills developed from 10 years of showing at the fair.

Online Giving Options Now Available

The Florida State Fair Foundation is built on tradition but tradition doesn’t mean abandoning technology.  With a mission to support agricultural, scientific and educational programs the Florida State Fair Foundation has developed a secure online giving option within it’s website. Donors can even earmark projects near and dear to their hearts.

With the 2019 Florida State Fair fast approaching sponsors are being solicited to support the many Ag students who take part in the annual Fair. Please see Champion of Champions page for further information.

Sponsors have the opportunity to not only support the many students who come to the Florida State Fair to show their animals but by becoming a Champion of Champions sponsor they may have the ability to donate meat to another of their favorite charities.

The Champion of Champions program not only expanded my knowledge of livestock production but it also helped prepare me for the real world.  The commitment, consistency and critical thinking skills I implemented in preparing for and participating in the program are skills that have carried over to all aspects of my life.  It is undeniable that the educational experience exhibitors have as a part of the Champion of Champions Program is second to none.  All exhibitors – at all fairs – know the basics about caring for their animals, but the C of C program expands that so they understand the science behind that care and an understanding of livestock production.  I would highly recommend this program to anyone with kids interested in animals.
