SPONSORSHIP PACKAGE


THE SMILE MISSION
“SMILE” is organized as a tax exempt public body operating to provide an educational, fun and nurturing environment for area youth to showcase their skills and talents, foster camaraderie and enhance their knowledge and appreciation of Southern Maryland’s rich agricultural heritage, and provide outreach to the community in order to inform and increase awareness of the vibrant and diverse possibilities of farming and agricultural enterprises in Southern Maryland. SMILE operates primarily within the Southern Maryland region consisting of Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles, Prince Georges and St. Mary’s counties and other counties by invitation.


THE SMILE STORY
The Southern Maryland Invitational Livestock Expo is the fruition of collaborative efforts of volunteers and enthusiasts from the 5 county region of Southern Maryland, University of Maryland Extension staff, the St. Mary’s County Fair Board and The Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission of the Tri-County Council for Southern Maryland. Participation in the Southern Maryland Invitational Livestock Expo is open to youth 8 to 21 years of age from the entire region of Southern Maryland, including Anne Arundel, Prince Georges, Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s counties and other counties by invitation.

SMILE TODAY
The two-day Expo now includes fitting and showing and market competitions for domestic livestock species beef, swine, goats, sheep, dairy cattle and a rabbit show. A total of 38 youth participated in the first SMILE show in 2005 with 175 livestock entries representing Anne Arundel, Charles and St. Mary’s Counties. A total of 102 youth and 350 animals participated in the 2015 show. We have increased county representation to include: Anne Arundel, Talbot, Queen Anne, Calvert, Charles, Prince George’s, and St. Mary’s. Youth development games and fellowship events are an important element of both show days; free admission is offered to the general public to view the show and demonstrations.

SMILE INTO THE FUTURE
Committee members are committed to improving and expanding SMILE each year. It is anticipated that youth participation will continue to grow through ‘word of mouth’ advertisement complimented by increased public relations and advertisement through the local media AND sponsorship.


We invite you to join the 2017 SMILE Sponsor’s Circle – with YOUR HELP we can:
• Add new breed / animal classes in order to offer opportunities for increased youth participation from all Southern Maryland counties and beyond.

• Showcase youth skill and talent in an agricultural context and increase youth awareness and appreciation for the region’s agricultural heritage.
