Oklahoma Youth Expo Seeks Photos, Historical Information for Centennial Commemorative BookMon, 24 Feb 2014 10:34:07 CST
To celebrate 100 years of the world’s largest junior livestock show, the Oklahoma Youth Expo is preparing a commemorative book highlighting the Expo’s history and contribution to Oklahoma and its youth.
From its early days as “The Oklahoma City Fat Stock Show” to its time as part of the Oklahoma Spring Fair, the Expo has evolved into the largest youth event in the state.
“The Oklahoma Youth Expo has a rich history of providing a venue and program to display some of the finest livestock in the country while funding higher education opportunities for youth pursuing studies in agriculture,” said Tyler Norvell, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Youth Expo. “This book will pay tribute to those who have benefited from this program and to those who have contributed to its success.”
In preparation for the book’s fall 2014 release, the Expo is asking for pictures and information on the history of the Expo from past participants, boosters, ag teachers and spectators. Those interested in sharing photos and memories should contact Kinsey Money at 918-520-4532 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to submit information to the Expo for consideration in the book is March 31, 2014.
