About the Show/Career Expo:
The Pearland ISD Livestock Show and Career Expo -- Sept. 27-29 at the Richard L. Wagoner Agricultural Facility -- will give students the opportunity to exhibit livestock, showcase career talents and win scholarships and awards.
A buyer's dinner will take place at the Pearland Knights of Columbus Hall, 2320 Hatfield Road, from 4-6 p.m. on Sept. 29, followed by a live auction.
During this inaugural year, the show will feature art and culinary contests and lamb, goat, pig and cattle shows, in addition to other events. Each year the show will expand to include new career competition fields.
Proceeds from the event will sponsor three scholarships for top culinary, art and livestock exhibitors.
