Earlier, Fair Books were distributed to students participating in the Seed Give-Away program. Other students received print-outs of the Youth Department categories. In addition to the Youth Department, fair departments 15, 17, 18, 19, 20, and 22 have youth divisions.

Highlights of some items in the Fair Book this year include:

The 2011 Fair Theme: “Preserving Our Tomorrows.” The theme is used for entries such as caked decorating and group exhibits.

Dept. 19 – Photography – all regular entries must now be 8x10 inches, no frames allowed, and must be mounted on black or white mat board (provided by the Fair this year).

Dept. 19, Sect. 4 – Table Settings theme: “By the Lake Shore.”

Burch Farms Country Market continues to sponsor the Apple Pie Making Contest for children in Kindergarten through Grade 5. Your child’s registration for this event includes registration for any other Fair contests. Registration forms are available at Burch Farms Country Market, 9210 Sidehill Road and on the Fair website.

In order to plan your entries and avoid disappointment, the Fair Association strongly suggests that all potential entrants obtain a current copy and read it carefully. Our department workers and officers are ready to answer your questions about Fair entries; contact information is listed in the Fair book and website or email us at with your questions. The 85th Annual North East Community Fair will be held on September 15-17, 2011, with entries being accepted on September 14 and 15.
