Don’t have a cow – it’s Ag in the Class

Turlock, CA (March 28, 2019) – The Stanislaus County Fair is partnering with local

pre-school through fifth-grade classes, as well as after school programs to teach students about the importance of dairy and dairy cattle in the community.

The Stanislaus County Fair’s “School Involvement Program” is sponsored by the Turlock Chamber of Commerce Ag Committee, which gives students an opportunity to learn about the dairy industry and its importance in Stanislaus County.

Specifically-developed curriculum kits will assist teachers with instructing students about dairy and dairy cattle. The free-of-charge kits include project information, a book, activities for the classroom, and supplies for the group project. Each class participating will have their projects entered and showcased at the 2019 Fair.

To participate, teachers must call the Fair Office at (209) 668-1333 and reserve their project kit – but hurry, there are only 30 available! The kits will be available starting Monday, April 1st at the Fair’s Exhibit Office located at 900 N. Broadway, Turlock in the front office. Kits may be picked up or turned in Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Please note: entry information must be completed and submitted before receiving the project kits. The deadline for submitting projects and summary forms is Thursday, June 27th by 4 p.m. Projects may be turned in before the deadline.

“Each class that participates will have their creative and educational projects displayed at the 2019 Stanislaus County Fair,” said Laura Moore, Exhibits Supervisor. “Cash prizes are awarded to classes whose creative projects are educational and rated brilliant and exceptional by project judges.”

The 2019 Stanislaus County Fair opens Friday, July 12th for a 10-day run. Fair guests can count on an award-winning experience that has been over 108 years in the making.
