Legislative Showmanship

Legislative Showmanship is one of the most important and enjoyable shows of the year during OYE. Each year, more than 100 Oklahoma legislators and celebrities attend the showmanship contest where they are paired with exhibitors to compete for top showman.

This is an opportunity for these local leaders to meet with the future leaders of the agriculture industry. The exhibitor becomes the teacher. This allows for local leaders to get hands on experience here at ‘The Greatest Show’ and see the value programs like OYE and stock shows have on our youth.

If you are an exhibitor interested in participating in Legislative Showmanship please complete the form below.

Support the Oklahoma Youth Expo
More than 7,600 Oklahoma exhibitors come to OYE to exhibit their cattle, sheep, goats, hogs and ag mechanics projects showcasing their dedication and hard work throughout the past year. All proceeds from this donation go to support the exhibitors in the Sale of Champions.

2025 Legislative Show Information

We look forward to seeing you Monday, March 17 at 6 p.m. at the OYE Legislative Show. Please arrive at your designated times below. Students need to be in official show attire.

Siblings that are showmen are allowed and encouraged to attend even if they are not paired up. All families are welcome in the stands to witness this fun event!

This is a unique opportunity to engage with legislators who craft our state laws and choose to support the Oklahoma Youth Expo and Oklahoma agriculture through their support of OYE and other programs. The goal is for you to spend a few minutes guiding them in showing your animal.
