Benefits of fairs:
    •    Fairs create approximately 6000 seasonal jobs in Washington each year.
    •    Sales tax generated on fairgrounds each year is $22-25 million.
    •    Non-profit organizations (Rotary, Kiwanis, Scouts, church groups, etc.) generate over $7 million a year at fairs. For
         many, this is their major fundraising event of the year.
    •    Fairs play a vital role in economic development for small businesses. For many businesses, the fair is the biggest
         sales event of the year. For others, it is the best way to test new products and gather consumer response.
    •    Educational and financial opportunities for youth – selling livestock to earn money for college.
    •    Fairgrounds are used in emergencies such as forest fires, floods, and power outages as to help provide emergency
         services.
    •    Fairs provide revenue for restaurants, grocery stores and other local businesses.
    •    Over 7.8 million people attend Washington fairs – that’s more than the state population.
    •    Fairs bring communities together, build community pride and provide affordable entertainment for families.
    •    The Fair Fund serves as the catalyst that generates economic development, youth development and community
         cohesiveness.

                                                           How to speak Fair
Fairs are a very traditional and unique industry. Each Fair may be similar in goal but may vary on how they deliver their message. Also
unique is the terminology. We hope this guide will offer some explanation to the world of Fair participation.

County Fair: a fair usually held annually at a set location in a county especially to exhibit local agricultural products and livestock. There are 36
County Fairs in Washington.
4-H: One of the nation’s largest youth organizations with the motto “Learn by Doing”. The 4 “H’s” stand for Head, Heart, Hands and Health.
Members are mentored by volunteer leaders using approved curriculum based material.
                                                                    rd
Primary: Enrolled 4-H members who have not yet entered the 3 grade.
                                               rd th
Junior: Enrolled 4-H members who are in 3 -5 grades.

Intermediate: Enrolled 4-H members who are in the 6 -8 grades.
                                                   th  th
Senior: Enrolled 4-H members who are in the 9 -12 grades.
FFA: Youth leadership organization Future For Agriculture. Students are enrolled through school based programs.
Open Class: Anyone can enter. Often, but not always, divided onto adult and youth categories.
Exhibitor: A person who enters displays or items into a Fair.
Vendor: A person or company that rents space at the Fair in order to showcase new and exciting products or services or old family favorites.
Vendors may be professional fair circuit providers or just local businesses expanding your awareness. While you may not purchase a product or
service at the Fair, many will offer business cards or catalogs for post Fair use.
Superintendent: A person who is charged to organize and manage a project, display area or contest. At most Fairs, including the Pierce
County Fair, superintendents are volunteers with years of experience in that project area.
Director: A member of the Fair Board that organizes and operates the Fair. At the Pierce County Fair, Directors are all volunteers from the
community.
4-H Agent: A paid member of the Washington State University Extension that leads the 4-H Youth Development Program for a county.
Danish System: No, not a breakfast item. Each item at the Fair is eligible to receive a ribbon based on the Danish System.
Excellent or Blue: A blue is given to those entries or members who most nearly meet the standards established for the particular class or level of
performance. Excellent does not indicate perfection, but is a wide grouping indicating a high degree of achievement toward the elements in the
standards for the exhibit.
Good or Red: The second or red grouping indicates those exhibits or individuals who rank good in relation to the particular standards or
expected achievement of the class or contest. Either the general level of the accomplishment is less than excellent or enough specific
shortcomings are found to cause the placing to drop from excellent to good.
Fair or White: The white grouping contains those exhibits or contestants who upon evaluation are found lacking and rate only average,
acceptable, or satisfactory rating for the standards established.

properly prepared the project for the show.

   Scouts must be registered members of the class they are entering in and can enter in one class only. For example, an exhibitor may not
enter both as a Scout and a Venturer. (Exception: Webelos 2 who have crossed over into a troop during the same year may enter in both
Classes 5 & 6.) Exhibits must have been made during the past year. Limit 3 exhibits per lot, but exhibits must not be the same type item. For
example, a rocket and a car may be entered in Lot B under derby, but 2 cars may not be entered by the same exhibitor. A single boat may be
entered under Lot A that has been entered in a regatta, but if the Cub Scout made another item that is connected to the regatta, he may enter
that also. (Suggestion: a display telling about what a regatta is that might include pictures of the regatta itself.) It is important to stress that the
work submitted should be the work of the individual member.

                                                           What is grange?
Grange is the nation's oldest national agricultural organization, with grassroots units established in 2,700 local
communities in 40 states. Its 200,000 members provide service to agriculture and rural areas on a wide variety of
issues, including economic development, education, family endeavors, and legislation designed to assure a strong
and viable Rural America. It was formed in the years following the American Civil War to unite private citizens in
improving the economic and social position of the nation's farm population. Over the past 143 years, it has
evolved to include non-farm rural families and communities.

The Grange is also a fraternal order known as the Order of Patrons of Husbandry, hence the "P of H" on the
organization's logo. Founding members determined that a fraternal organization would be best able to combine
loyalty and democratic ideals to provide service to others. The National Grange was one of the first formal groups
to admit women to membership on the basis of equality with men. It remains so today.

ENTRY FORMS ARE TO BE SENT TO THE PIERCE COUNTY FAIR BY JULY 19. After entries have been received the FFA General
Superintendent will allocate stalls and coordinate the activity of the various chapters. FFA exhibitors may show with 4-H Senior classes if there
are not sufficient entries to form competitive classes. Send entries to: Pierce County Fair P.O. Box 4901, Spanaway, WA 98387. Entries
not turned in by the due date may not be allowed to exhibit.
          All FFA Exhibitors must have an FFA Advisor present at the Pierce County Fair or must have adult supervision approved by the FFA
Superintendent and their school district superintendent’s office. The designated adult or their Chapter Advisor must assume the duties of the
advisor.
          All FFA members are required to attend an exhibitors meeting as called by the FFA Superintendent. Time will be posted on
animal entry day.
          If exhibitor or chapters want straw bales to separate herds, they must be supplied from home or you must provide other means of
separation. The Fair will not provide straw for that purpose.
          Herdsmanship Contest (No points). Herdsmanship is required of all exhibitors who bring exhibits to the Fair. Herdsmanship is to
encourage better care and display of animals on exhibit. Judges will examine the displays at least twice each day. All chapter exhibits are
automatically entered. At least one exhibitor shall be present with each chapter exhibit at all times. Each chapter exhibitor is expected to
perform duties of Herdsmanship. Local chapter advisor may for reasons of health or safety, excuse an exhibitor. Please Advise the FFA
Superintendent.

FFA members in Animal Science Divisions should enter using the information listed in the 4-H Animal Project Areas. If there are
insufficient numbers of FFA participants to comprise a proper class, FFA members will be integrated into the 4-H classes with
separate awards.

Historically, the people involved in Agricultural Fairs possess traditional values and honor. At the Pierce County Fair, that
tradition continues. However, the Pierce County Fair is open to the public and those entering the fairgrounds may not
necessarily possess the same values. Thus, we would like to take a moment to remind you, the fair exhibitor and guest, to take
precautions against those who are looking to take advantage of others.
The best way to avoid problems is to provide good customer service, greeting and making eye contact with those in
your exhibit area.
* Be attentive to those approaching/entering your exhibit area.
* Keep personal items out of site. Cameras, cell phones and other electronic devices are easily concealed.
* At night, secure your exhibit as best as possible. Cover items with sheets or tarps. If in a building, please lock, but only use a
lock that has been approved by Fair Management.
Other tips…
* Should you notice any safety issue or concern, don’t hesitate to call the Fair office at 253-847-4754. Security will be
dispatched to your location.
* Medical aid is on site during fair hours. Should you need medical aid, dial 9-1-1, and then contact the Fair office at 253-847-
4754. Our team will arrive and direct aid to your location.
* You may also contact maintenance by calling the Fair office 253-847-4754.

    4-H exhibits are judged by the Danish System. Each entry is judged on its own merit taking into consideration the
age of the exhibitor, the degree of difficulty of the project and the number of years in the project. All entries receive
a ribbon unless the exhibit was disqualified.

 •    Good care of your sheep and the assigned exhibiting stall is an important part of the responsibility of exhibiting at the Pierce County Fair.

      feeding & grooming conditions that will insure the good health and safety of the sheep. Exhibitors will show consideration and sensitivity
      toward the public visiting the Fair.

 •    Any schedule changes will be announced at the Exhibitor meeting Wednesday evening.
 •    Fitting & Showing Livestock (EM 1982) will be the guide for Fitting & Showmanship.

 missed shifts, will result in an incomplete show, and could result in forfeiture of awards. This is a contest to encourage better care and display
 of projects as well as teamwork within the county. Judging of Herdsmanship will be done one or more times daily during exhibit hours. Each
 exhibitor will serve one or more Herdsmanship shifts per day. The number & length of shifts depends on the number of exhibitors. A blue,
 Red, or White ribbon will be awarded according to the Danish system of judging on the last day of Fair.

    Construction is only one of the important aspects of clothing. For 4-H members to become careful clothing consumers, they also need to
know about making wise purchases, caring for clothes and how clothing affects self and others. This activity gives young men and women a
chance to show their skill in selecting and purchasing an outfit for themselves.
    This activity is open to 4-H members enrolled in the Clothing & Textile project. Evaluation will be scheduled with the Fashion Revue judging
by a separate panel of judges. Evaluation will include appearance, fit, cost, care, suitability for the occasion it was purchased for and how it fits
into existing wardrobe.
    Garments modeled may be purchased new, secondhand or recycled.

   Members participating in this activity must fill out a Creative Consumers of Fashion work sheet complete with a photo or photos suitable for
display. Bring the work sheet and an extra copy of the narration to the judging event. Garments will not be exhibited at Pierce County Fair; but
the photo and work sheet will. No public fashion show will take place at County Fair; but winners qualify to participate in this activity at State
Fair.

This department is open to and designed for any 4-H member who has any degree of mental or physical handicap or disability. 4-H members
with any degree of mental or physical handicap or disability have two options in exhibiting at the county fair.
 •    Option 1 – They may enter any of the classes listed in the fair book (must be enrolled in the project you are exhibiting in) and have their
      exhibits judged in accordance with the standards in the various departments.
 •    Option 2 – They may enter their exhibits (from projects enrolled in) in the “Special Youth Audiences” Department. Check the various
      departments to see the type of exhibit(s) that would be appropriate.

   This department is designed to have each member visit with the judge about their project. Ribbon awards for the project will be based on: the
exhibit, and the individual’s ability. Please plan to spend a few minutes with the judge when you bring your project to the Fair on Tuesday,
August 9 between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Please pre-arrange with 4-H Office for the time and day.

   There is no special class for handicapped and/or disabled at the State Fair, thus, your exhibits which qualify for State Fair would be judged in
accordance with the standards in the various departments.

Class:
 1. Special Youth Audience Exhibits
These may be from one or more project areas in which the member is enrolled.
Points allowed:   Blue 10; Red 8; White 6

  Points will be awarded depending on the extensiveness of exhibits and the number of different project areas covered. The points will be
equal to those awarded elsewhere in the fair book.

 •     Self-Determined Projects must be pre-registered at the 4-H Office by July 19.
 •     Self-Determined Projects are to be entered when other Division related exhibits are entered (i.e. Self-Determined Mechanical Sciences
       entries should be entered at the same time other mechanical science entries are scheduled to be entered), unless notified otherwise.
 •     Premiums – similar to educational displays and considering the work put into the overall project and how the entry is displayed will
       determine premium points. For example, a welding entry that has both the welded item and a display showing how the piece was made
       will get more premiums than for just the welded item itself. Both would need to have their project plans with the entries.
