Scholarships and Community Building: The State Fair of Texas is on a Mission

The State Fair of Texas celebrates all things Texan. While most of us love a good corn dog and spending the day with Big Tex, most do not know about the mission-driven initiatives of The State Fair of Texas. The Big Tex Scholarship Program was established in 1992. Scholarships totaling more than 13.9 million have been awarded to 2,700 students. Proceeds also help preserve and improve Fair Park’s museums and community initiatives.
