SA Rodeo: School Tours

SCHOOL TOURS @ SAN ANTONIO RODEO

What are School Tours:  

The School Tours program gives young students and their teachers the opportunity to learn about the past and present methods of agriculture. School Tours are offered to students in Kindergarten through third grade attending public, private and home schools.
High School aged students of the 4-H, FFA and FCCLA organizations from South Texas are invited each year to serve as Tour Guides for this committee. Tour Guides assist in educating the students about agriculture and its valued importance, while sharpening their leadership and responsibility skills. Tours last 2 to 2-1/2 hours.
During the tour, students will visit a number of areas where they can view exhibits and demonstrations. Animal Adventures and the horse center are just a couple of the areas students will visit to learn more about agriculture through interactive hands-on displays and view live farm animals that include: cattle, swine, sheep, goat, poultry and horses. The tour also visit the Family Fair area of the grounds. This area has additional exhibits, live entertainment and petting zoos.
School Tour Dates are: 
Week one:Feb 12-16th 
Week two: Feb 20-21st
If you are interested in being a Tour Guide please sign up with the Extension Office by Dec. 29th at 512-393-2120 or email: Kate.blankenship@ag.tamu.edu
