“STATE AID TO FAIRS”

 The General Assembly of the State of Tennessee, realizing the importance of the educational value of fairs, increased interest in livestock, agriculture, Junior Agriculture and Livestock such as 4-H and FFA Clubs, resulting from competition at fairs, has annually appropriated a fund known as State Aid to Fairs. This fund is allotted and distributed by the State Department of Agriculture through the Commissioner of Agriculture and is State Aid to farmers, livestock breeders, etc. The Tennessee State Fair participates in this program and receives each year a proportion of this allotment. “For the purpose of encouraging fairs to excel in their usefulness of their respective areas, a Merit Award provision was also made in the appropriation. It is hoped that the Tennessee State Fair can have an exhibition sufficiently creditable to warrant its receiving one of the special Merit Awards in Addition to its allotment of State Aid.”
