For many students, participating in their school’s Fair field trip is their only opportunity to attend the Fair to learn about the importance of agriculture to our Valley.
A full day of learning is planned for the students as they rotated around five different learning stations. Each station provided hands-on activities: make-and-take projects, educational presentations, rocket launches, and getting up close with the farm animals.
In 2023 the Central Washington State Fair held 2 days of learning with 1,200 students from across the Valley participating. 6 bus scholarships in the amount of $3,100 were given to underserved schools – paying for the bus and driver to participate in the Fair Field Trip. Cost per student $25
