Youth Chuck Wagon Cook-Off
The Red Steagall Cowboy Gathering Youth Poetry Contest started in 1993. That year and through 1996, we awarded winners trips to places like Disneyworld, etc.
In 1997 the gathering, through the Cowboy Heritage Association of Fort Worth, began awarding college scholarships for first and second place in the contest for two age groups; 8-12 and 13-18.
To date the poetry contest alone, we have awarded close to $250,000 paid to the colleges of their choice through both the Texas Tomorrow Fund and now through the Texas College Savings Plan.
