WSFA SCRAPBOOK CONTEST
Due Thursday, October 20, 2022
between 10:00 a.m. & 3:00 p.m.
A scrapbook should tell the story of your fair and its operations. It provides a lasting record of the fair on a yearly basis and is a treasury of all aspects of activities, events and people. Assemble your scrapbook as if every person who looks at it has never attended your fair. These rules were developed to provide flexibility and allow each fair entering a scrapbook to be creative and innovative in producing their record.
Scrapbooks will compete in the appropriate size division (a) under 8,000 and youth shows (b) 8,001-22,000 (c) 22,001-40,000 (d) 40,001-100,000 (e) 100,001 and over. Judging score will be based on the judging results for the categories listed below.
