Junior Fair Board Applications

Junior Fair Board (JFB) is currently accepting applications for 2019.  JFB members oversee many important tasks for the Clermont County Junior Fair.  Members solicit award sponsorships, organize the awards and supplies for all youth events (pre-fair week and during the week), assist in the execution of various Junior Fair events and activities, and assist in planning before the fair for facilities, judges, rules, etc. They work in a cooperative effort with the Senior Fair Board, Senior Superintendents, Extension Office staff and club/chapter advisors.

The age requirements for membership have changed for this year.  Youth ages 13-18 who are involved in a youth organization are eligible to apply.  Participation in the Junior Fair Board is a excellent opportunity for youth to development leadership and organizational skills; plus, it looks great on a resume!  Applications are online this year and are due by Monday, October 15.  Click the links below to apply.
