I was out at the fair grounds last night checking out the circus and sitting in on the fair board meeting. Let me tell you the fair grounds are looking good and my ears are “buzzing” with everything that is going on. The latest buzz is that The Linn County Fair Board is sponsoring the 3R’s Poster Contest- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
As you know The Linn County Fair is “Going Green” in 2009. Part of that the Fair Association’s goal is to educate the residents of Linn County of how they can reduce, reuse and recycle. They have put together a poster contest that will allow the youth of Linn County to help educate fair goers on how they can go “green.”
This contest is open to all children (ages 5-19) in Linn County. The purpose of the contest is to show the different ways in which everyone can reduce, reuse, and recycle. The posters will be displayed on the outside of the buildings throughout the fairgrounds during the fair. Entry day for posters is Wednesday, July 8 at the gate building.
