The Power of Today's Youth

The Elgin Livestock Show Association (ELSA) is a 501c3 non-profit organization that hosts the Bastrop County junior Livestock Show and Youth Fair. We are focused on bringing individuals together to develop a beneficial program for the youth in agriculture through our livestock show and youth fair. We are focused on promoting the care of livestock and creation of projects to exhibit and sell through this program. We hope to foster a positive environment with an appreciation for hard work while strengthening the youth to accomplish their goals of higher education.
