The Fort Bend County Fair recently held the Livestock competition, and Christie Koerth from George Ranch FFA won the title for Grand Champion Steer! 

Students who showed their market animals started with the responsibility of choosing which animals to raise for this competition. After the students selected their animals, they had to keep track of the animals’ growth at every stage. Every detail about how the animals were cared for was crucial to how well they showed at the fair. 

This was an incredible experience for all the students involved. Students learned how to raise different animals properly and the pride behind the process. The skill and discipline that the students took away are some that will help them throughout their lives. 

The Fort Bend County Fair started this fun annual tradition in October 1933. The mission of the fair has always been to “benefit youth, promote agriculture and support education.” The scholarship program began in 1979 and 800 scholarships have been awarded to students since then. This non-profit organization has been an incredible way to rally the Summer Lakes and Summer Parks communities together. Congratulations, Christie!
