2020 Modified Elroy Fair Junior Judging Event Winners

With caution and precautions to keep participants safe from COVID-19, the Elroy Fair held a modified event which involved youth exhibitors only at their junior judging event in June.  The Elroy Fair is a district fair, not a county fair. After canceling the fair to the public in May, two weeks passed before the decision to hold a junior judging event only was made.  Through communication with the health department, the city, and a compilation and sharing of a document which outlined all guidelines and procedures that would be followed when gathering for judging, planning went forward and a successful event was realized. Here is the list of champions and department winners for the COVID edition of the Elroy Fair.  A complete list of results can be found online at www.ElroyFair.com
