Being an Award Sponsor means you are assisting in awarding premium money to any of the livestock shows that take place throughout the week, or helping to provide banners, plaques or other awards to livestock show exhibitors. Your business name will be displayed on banners or plaques given to youth exhibitors, as well as in the “thank you” ad that is run in the tri-state neighbor in February.
Levels will be shown in “thank you” ad in purebred cattle guide, which is distributed to 10,000+ producers and provided to all Show visitors. Levels will also be mentioned as the Show announcers thank sponsors throughout the duration of the Sioux Empire Livestock Show.
Producer – $500+
Top Hand – $250-$499
Wrangler – $150-$249
Drover – below $150
Being an Award Sponsor means you are assisting in awarding premium money to any of the livestock shows that take place throughout the week, or helping to provide banners, plaques or other awards to livestock show exhibitors.
Another opportunity to promote your business, while still supporting the Livestock Show, is the purchasing of banner space in the Expo Building throughout the duration of the 2020 Sioux Empire Livestock Show at a cost of $350. Banners, which you will provide, can be flexible regarding size, but we suggest a banner measuring at least 5’ x 8’.
If you choose to be an Award Sponsor AND purchase banner space, you will be listed in all advertising mentioned above, as well as mentioned grouped within the “Sponsorship Levels” above.
Because the SELS has three main Show Rings, each year the Show Rings will be named after their Sponsor. Show Ring Sponsors provide company banners to be displayed in their show ring for the duration of the Show. Additionally, the option to provide an announcer for one of the Shows that takes place in their show ring is an advantage to being a Show Ring Sponsor.
Show Ring Sponsors have their Show Ring named after them leading up to and for the duration of the SELS on all schedule communications.
Example: Announcer states, “We will get started with the Market Goat Show in the Chamber Ring in about 10 minutes!” or stated in advertisement, “Thursday, January 24 – Feeder Heifer Show – 6 P.M. – Chamber Ring”
2019 SELS Show Ring Sponsors:
East Ring – Grand Falls Casino & Golf Resort
West Ring – Midwest Communications/Big Country 92.5 KTWB
Main Market Ring – Show-Rite Feeds
The $12,000 purse split between the consignors and the buyers of the Supreme Champion Bull and Heifer is Sponsored by the Tri-State Neighbor (Gold), Wells Fargo Bank (Silver) and Campbell's (Bronze). The Supreme Row purse pays $3,500 to the consignors of the Supreme Champion Bull and Heifer and pays $2,500 to the buyers of the Supreme Champion Bull and Heifer.
Each Supreme Row consignor is also eligible to win a one-year lease on a 24' M.H. EBY, Inc. trailer, courtesy of M.H. EBY, Inc.
Because of our generous sponsor, The First National Bank in Sioux Falls, you don’t have to be present at the SELS to view all livestock shows or bid on consignments at the Purebred Cattle Sales.
