Daily Agricultural Education Display Award

Each day of Fair one display will receive special recognition based on the following:


-  Display must be related to agriculture

-  Educational material should teach the public about some aspect of agriculture (material can be written, oral, or visual)

-  Special consideration is given to displays that involve the public in hands-on experiences


The award can be presented to individuals, groups, barns, businesses or organizations.


In addition, a Special Educational Award may be given to a display that is education but not necessarily agricultural related.
