The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo hosts a Food Challenge Show modeled after the hit TV Series “Iron Chef.” This Food Challenge gives both FFA and 4-H students from across Texas the chance to showcase their cooking skills, but also requires the students to know preparation, nutritional facts, and origins of ingredients. Exhibitors compete as individuals in this competition in which they are randomly assigned into one of four categories: Bread & Cereal, Fruit & Vegetable, Main Dish, and Nutritious Snacks. The top placing exhibitors in each category advance to the Final Challenge for additional prizes and awards.

Colleges and universities from across the nation travel to the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo to compete in the intercollegiate judging contests. The two contests hosted are Livestock Judging and Wool Judging. Livestock Judging focuses on contestants ranking cattle, goats, sheep, and swine on their desirable characteristics and defending their decisions to a group of judges. Wool Judging includes grading fleeces, judging classes of fleeces, and presenting reasons to justify their rankings. The students on these judging teams practice year round to hone their skills which better prepares them to be successful in these contests and upon graduation. Contestants have a strong background in livestock and/or wool production, but it is the critical thinking and communication skills that allow them to be competitive in the workplace.
