Watch Live Below (on Sunday, Aug. 2 at 2 pm)
 
The 2014 sale will include 11 champions from 16 youth: Grand and Reserve Champion Market Beef, Grand and Reserve Champion Market Barrow, Grand and Reserve Champion Market Lamb, Grand and Reserve Champion Meat Chickens, Grand Champion Market Goat, Grand Champion Market Turkey and Grand Champion Swiss Cheese (representing the six dairy champions). 
 
A high point of the Junior Fair program, the sale, established in 1968, showcases the animals that are selected as the premium entry in their species. Just as important as the exhibitors are the devoted supporters who attend the sale to purchase these animals and donate generously to the Youth Reserve Program. To date, the Youth Reserve Program has awarded $2,556,875 to approximately 32,000 youth exhibitors since its inception. 
 
Generous buyers at the 2013 Sale of Champions set record sale prices in seven categories including Grand Champion Swiss Cheese, Grand Champion Turkey, Grand Champion Meat Goat, Grand Champion Meat Chicken, Reserve Grand Champion Meat Chicken, Reserve Grand Champion Market Lamb, and Reserve Grand Champion Barrow. 
 
Since 1995, the Ohio State Fair has placed caps on the amounts exhibitors can earn from their exhibits’ sales. Money exceeding the cap amounts is distributed to reward other youth exhibitors through the Youth Reserve Program. The program allots funds for scholarships, the outstanding market exhibitor Program, FFA, 4-H, skillathons, outstanding breeding exhibitor program, showmanship and other Fair competition winners.
