The Tomball FFA show went off without a hitch, sending several students home with smiles on their faces after accomplishing a year-long goal.
Tomball Memorial High School (TMHS) junior Tyler Binder said that raising his steer, Buddy, was one of the most challenging things he has done, but that he enjoyed the experience.
The show included a silent auction for various donated items as well as the big event, the live animal auction.
TMHS's Bryce Evans raised the Grand Champion turkey, while TMHS sophomore Sannon Henry raised the Reserve Champion turkey.
Tomball High School (THS) FFA members Madeline Reid and Kaitlyn Free raised the Grand Champion and Reserve Champion rabbits respectively, while fellow THS students Taylor Karr and Sydney Breaux raised the top two lambs.
The Grand Champion swine ribbon went to THS sophomore Luke Marek, while TMHS senior Ashley Muchow grabbed the Reserve Champion award.
The Grand Champion broilers were shown by THS junior Brianna Treichel and the Reserve Champion went to THS freshman Jacob Jenkins.
The show's bigggest prize, the Grand Champion steer, was awarded to THS junior Kathryn Lewandowski, while Reserve Champion honors went to TMHS junior Cheyanne Foster.
There were more than 280 students who raised, showed and sold an animal this year, which was the districts 38th annual event.
The show serves as the major fundraiser for the FFA programs at both schools.
