Thank you for your interest in becoming part of the Bedford County Junior Fair Board.
We are very excited about expanding the involvement in our youth in the planning, preparation and presentation of the annual Bedford County Fair. Candidates must be age 14 on or after January 1st of the current year. Maximum age, you must not turn 21 before January 1st of the current year to be eligible. Applications must be submitted to the Bedford Fair Office.
The purpose of the Junior Fair Board (JFB) is to provide young adults with an opportunity to develop leadership skills, perform community service and become aware of the business and operations of the Bedford County Fair. Junior Fair Board member duties will include providing outreach in the members’ communities and schools as well as providing input to the Board of Directors as to what their age groups would like to see at the fair. The Junior Fair Board’s efforts will include pre-fair set up in all areas of the fair and involvement in other fair activities. During the fair, Junior Fair Board members will assist with various tasks during the week.
The Junior Fair Board will be under the direction of advisers, Troy and Susie Mickle, Junior Fair Board Committee and the Board of Directors. Each Junior Fair Board member will serve a term of one year and may apply each year subject to the age period listed above. Meetings will be scheduled as needed throughout the year.
This is an incredible opportunity to expose a select group of young individuals to a very unique and exciting industry plus put you in touch with your fair in a way that would be hard to do any other way.
