Applications are now being accepted for the 2021 Brown County Junior Fairboard. 

The Brown County Junior Fairboard is comprised of youth from all junior fair organizations and serves as the working group for the fair. Members of the Junior Fairboard solicit trophy donations, assist at tag-ins/check-ins, and fundraising events throughout the year. At the fair, members assist with department duties, work in the junior fair office, and help with other junior fair activities as needed. 

Members are selected for a one-year term and must be at least 14 as of January 1, 2021. New member’s terms begin in January. Members may renew their term each year by satisfactorily meeting the expectations of membership and submitting a returning member application by the set deadline. Members may only miss three unexcused meetings in a year. All meetings are held the 1st Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in Rhonemus Hall at the Brown County Fairgrounds unless otherwise noted. We do not meet in July or December. 

Junior Fairboard members make many decisions and rules regarding the junior fair program and are often asked to enforce the rules during fair time. Applicants should be fair-minded individuals who are willing to look at issues from various points of view while remembering to support the rules in place. Applicants should also be prepared to solicit donations, help with tag-ins and clinics throughout the year and to work hard at a variety of events during the fair. Members will be provided with a list of expectations and responsibilities at the beginning of the year, failure to satisfactorily meet the outlined expectations may result in a member not being selected to serve another term.

If this sounds of interest to you, please complete this online application.
