Outdoor booths are just a plot of land. Bring your own cover.
This year’s theme is Deep Roots – New Horizons. The top booth that incorporates the theme (educational & commercial) will win a free booth for next year, a spiffy ribbon, and bragging rights! If you would like to be sure that the judges stop by your booth email email@example.com.
The annual agricultural industry awards and reception will be held on Friday, May 5th from 4-6pm in the main classroom under Building A (Arts & Crafts Building – white).
