The Junior Committee is to allow students in grades 9th - 12th become more involved in the Fair Association through activities and community service. Students must be or become a Fair member, and be willing to commit to attending membership meetings and work shifts to be eligible for this very special program. Applications for the Junior Committee are due in the Fair Office by Thursday, September 22, 2016.
The purpose of the Junior Committee 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 Montgomery County Fair. Junior Committee member duties will include providing outreach in the members' communities and schools as well as providing assistance to volunteers and staff during the Fair. The Junior Committee efforts could also include set up in all departments including fundraisers, grounds preparation and office preparation. During the Fair, members will assist with various tasks based on the requests of Chairmen from existing committees. Tasks could also include assisting with special contests on stages and/or in departments, help conduct opening ceremonies and award presentations, have opportunities to assist with entertainment and stage acts, and provide general assistance as needed.
This is an incredible opportunity to expose a select group of individuals to a very unique and exciting industry and allow students a glimpse at the logistics of the Fair, while providing educational and fun opportunities throughout the year.
