The Umatilla County Fair is accepting applications for the 2019 court.
The program is open to students in ninth through 12th grade who reside in Umatilla County. Court members will learn leadership skills, responsibility and how to represent themselves as well as their county with dignity and pride.
The opportunity offers young people a chance to represent Umatilla County not only during fair week in August, but at parades and other functions throughout Eastern Oregon and Washington in 2019. The Umatilla County Fair court program is a time-honored tradition and many of the fair court alumni are still involved with the fair in some aspect.
Fair court applications are due Friday, Oct. 26 by 4 p.m. at the fair office, located at the Eastern Oregon Trade and Event Center, 1705 E. Airport Road, Hermiston. Also, the application packet may be sent electronically via firstname.lastname@example.org. Those who choose to email the information are urged to make sure they receive confirmation from fair staff to ensure receipt of the forms.
Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. Fair staff will contact all accepted applicants to schedule interviews.
Applications are available at the fair office and its website by visiting www.umatillacountyfair.net/fair-court. In addition, fair court applications are distributed via email to high schools throughout the county and the 4-H Extension office in Pendleton, as well as posted on Facebook.
