Applicants needed for Junior Fair Board

The Adams County Junior Fair Board is seeking applications from interested youth to serve on the 2015-16 Board. Applicants must be in at least the ninth grade this fall and must be a member of a Junior Fair organization planning to exhibit one or more projects in the 2016 Adams County Fair. Junior Fair organizations include 4-H, FFA, FCCLA, and Boy and Girl Scouts.

Youth should apply through their respective youth organization. 4-H members and youth seeking to serve an at-large term on the Board must complete an application, which may be found on the OSU Extension Adams County website at http://adams.osu.edu/program-areas/4-h-youth-development/policies-and-forms. Applications are due to the Extension Office on or before Sept. 1.

4-H applicants will be interviewed and selected for a one or two year term on the Board by a subcommittee of the county’s 4-H Advisory Committee. 4-H has at least six vacancies on the Board to fill each year to complete its complement of 12 members.

Interested FFA and FCCLA members should contact their advisors for a copy of the Junior Fair Board appointment form and contract. Each FFA and FCCLA chapter has a specific number of appointments to make, and advisors must sign and forward to the Extension Office completed and signed forms from those members whom the chapter appoints. Grange youth and Scout members must also apply through their respective clubs, troops, or chapters. Most appointments are for a two-year term. All completed and signed appointment forms must be submitted to the Extension Office by mid-September.

At-large members are elected by the Board at its annual meeting, set for Wednesday, Oct. 7. The meeting will be held at the Ohio Valley Career and Technical Center, beginning with a pizza social and get-acquainted session. The meeting, including the election of officers and preliminary review of suggestions and rule changes for the 2016 Adams County Junior Fair, will begin at 7 p.m.
