FAIRGROUNDS SEEKING INDIVIDUAL NOMINATIONS FOR NEVADA COUNTY FAIR’S HALL OF FAME
The Nevada County Fairgrounds is seeking nominations for inductees into the Nevada County Fair’s Hall of Fame for 2010, and the community is encouraged to nominate individuals for this honor.
The Fair’s Nominating Committee is looking for individuals who support the Nevada County Fair and community relationships in a way that strengthens the mission and vision of the Fair. This support should be through assisting Nevada County youth during Fair activities; supporting agriculture, performing arts or educational activities; encouraging community participation in using the Fairgrounds as a community event venue; assisting in maintaining the beauty of the Fairgrounds; or any significant activity that helps move the Nevada County Fair toward its mission and vision.
Awards are given to individuals, not groups or organizations, and consideration may be given to individuals who are no longer living if their contributions were significant.
If you’d like to nominate an individual for the Nevada County Fair Hall of Fame, please submit a one page letter by July 7 stating your reasons why you are nominating the individual. Send letters by e-mail to reply@NevadaCountyFair.com or by mail to the Nevada County Fairgrounds at P.O. Box 2687, Grass Valley, CA 95945. The Nevada County Fair Board of Directors will review all nominations and choose the individual before the beginning of the 2010 Nevada County Fair.
Recipients will be formally inducted into the Hall of Fame at opening day ceremonies on Wednesday, August 11. In addition to access to the Fair and its many activities, the winner will also receive a portrait donated by Schaffers Originals.
With a theme of “Rooted in Tree-dition,” the Nevada County Fair is August 11 – 15. For more information, visit www.NevadaCountyFair.com, call (530) 273-6217 or follow us on Facebook at “Nevada County Fairgrounds.”
