Also new for 2013, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is contributing to the American Festival for the Arts, Children’s Museum of Houston, Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory, Memorial Park Conservancy, The Center for Hearing and Speech, The Health Museum, and more. Additionally, the Show will continue its support of the Alley Theatre, Baylor Research Advocates for Student Scientists, Brookwood Community, Houston Independent School District — Apollo 20 Program, Holocaust Museum Houston, Houston Community College Public Safety Institute, Houston Grand Opera, Teach for America – Houston, Theatre Under the Stars, and other local and statewide educational programs.
“College scholarships are a major part of the Show’s educational commitment, but we also have identified a number of local and statewide organizations which concentrate on the development of youth at a younger age,” Wagner said. “It is rewarding to see the results of these educational programs, which share in the same vision of molding the lives of our future generations.”
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is a Section 501(c)(3) charity that benefits youth, supports education, and facilitates better agricultural practices through exhibitions and presentation. The 2013 Show runs Monday, Feb. 25, through Sunday, March 17.
