Travis County Youth Show (TCYS)
January 10-14, 2017
Travis County Expo Center

Mark your calendars now for this important show!  All information will be updated below as dates/times are determined.


Travis County Yout(TCYS) is held at the Expo Center in eastern Travis County. TCYS is open to residents/students of Travis County in good standing.  All rules and deadlines for this show can be found on the TCYS website at

Bowie-Austin FFA Students can participate in TCYS by either submitting a Youth Fair Project or by raising and showing a market animal project through the Livestock Show.

Youth Fair:
Students can show their creativity through projects ranging from baked goods to art. Some of these projects will be eligible for sale where the student can earn money for their item.

Livestock Show:
Students who have raised a market animal have the opportunity to participate in the TCYS Livestock Show.   This show is not terminal meaning you get your animal projects back at the end of the show (even if you make the auction/sale).

Bowie-Austin FFA Alumni Hospitality Tent
The Bowie Tent serves as home base to the Bowie Community. We welcome all family, friends and the TCYS Board. Please bring your own chairs. Animals require constant supervision while the Show Barn is open, so plan to spend the day. We are located in the parking lot at the North- East Entrance of the Show Barn between the Youth Fair Exhibit Building and the Show Barn. We ask for donations and assistance with the tent area so all parents have the opportunity to watch their children show.

We are planning a fabulous array of cuisine variations and we ask that each family donate (amount to be determined) to cover the costs involved in feeding our families and guests for 4 days.  This allows for everyone to concentrate on getting ready for the show!

We ask for volunteers to assist with the grill and food area. We have a great group of students and parents, please work together to help keep the area clean and sanitary


TCYS requires that shavings be purchased at the show.  They are $7 a bag payable by cash or check only.


Bowie-Austin FFA students who make the auction are asked to make a donation to the TCYS Scholarship Fund in lieu of the traditional buyer’s gift basket.
