LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Angelina County Youth Fair came to an end on Friday night. The final event was the auction, which is what many feel is the most important and rewarding event.
"It's the end of their job. They spent months on preparing for this, and when they reach this point this is the climax of it," said R.V. Swor, buyer's pool coordinator.
Many of the award-winning livestock like cattle, goats, chickens and pigs were sold to the highest bidder. The money goes to the youth who showed them. It's a reward for all of their hard work, and many students use the money they earn as scholarships for college.
