Champion of Champions


The Florida State Fair offers a unique youth program called Champion Animals and Champion Youth.

Through this program, the fair offers the youth exhibitors the opportunity to show their prize winning animals as well as the option of participating in numerous educational activities. The exhibitors not only earn animal premiums, but by participating in the educational activities, they can earn additional achievement premiums.

On the final day of the fair, the top 32 Senior Champion Youth Exhibitors compete to be the “Best of the Best” in the final round robin competition. This is a prestigious event that honors the youth as well as the support of donors, LIKE YOU!


The money from your donation goes directly to the youth exhibitors in the form of achievement premiums, by helping to make their 4-H or FFA animal project profitable.


Your support of this program will benefit over 1000 young people from across the state. As one of the exhibitors stated in her thank you letter, “Because of your generosity and the help of other sponsors, I will never forget my time at the Florida State Fair. I hope one day I make a difference in someone’s life the way you made a difference in mine.”
