Student Payments

Premium Sale: The price of two 8" x 10" pictures (approximately $20.00) will be deducted from every premium sale item. These pictures are to be delivered by the students to the buyers within THIRTY DAYS from receipt of buyer's information. Students will provide a confirmation signature from the buyer acknowledging that the picture was received, otherwise students will not receive payment.

All Sales/Gifts: Within THIRTY DAYS from the receipt of the buyer’s information, students are required to have up‐to‐date record books with an agriscience teacher’s approval. Students will provide confirmation that a thank you note was written and delivered. Students will not receive payment without this documentation.

Payments to students will be withheld until pledged funds are received for the purchase of the project(s) or gift(s). Any pledged funds not received may be deducted from the payment to the student. A commission of 10% will be charged on all projects sold in the premium sale, freezer sale, silent auction, and gifts to students. The funds generated from this 10% fee will be deposited in the general account of the Livestock Show Association to cover expenses related to running the show and sale.
