The Oklahoma Youth Expo welcomes any and all media to attend “The World’s Largest Junior Livestock Show.” Each year, more than 7,000 exhibitors from all 77 Oklahoma counties travel to Oklahoma City to exhibit more than 13,000 cattle, sheep, goats and pigs. This 10 day event showcases the most talented ag youth in the state and here at OYE we work to reward our talented youth. Each year nearly $2 million in scholarships are awarded to our exhibitors, for we believe they are the future of our state and the agriculture industry.
