Required Event Sponsor Letter

Think of a sponsor thank-you letter as a self-marketing tool and a critical component of your project. Your relationship with the sponsor does not end once the fair has banked their cash and purchased trophies.  It is the start of an ongoing exchange. An important part will be keeping your sponsor informed of how well their money is being spent and how much you appreciate them.  The start and finish of this is, of course, saying thank you. 

As a participant in the Suwannee River Youth Livestock Show and Sale you are required to write thank you letters to show sponsors, contest sponsors, and market animal buyers.

Required Show and Contest Sponsor Thank You Letters

Your animal will not be checked into the fair until a show/contest sponsor thank you letter is submitted. No Torn Pages, Frayed Edges or Envelopes will be excepted. Letters MUST BE HANDWRITTEN and AT THE MINIMUM MUST include 3 paragraphs with at least 9 sentences, using the following format:


► Paragraph 1: Introduce yourself (name, age, school, club/chapter, what other shows you participate in, etc.);

► Paragraph 2: tell what the project is (steer, swine, horse, rabbit, etc.) and  describe what you learned from the project (do not just say “I learned responsibility” or “I learned time management,” but explain how you learned it  and why it is important);

► Paragraph 3: Express your appreciation and  tell how much you appreciate them and their sponsorship.
