Participation and Attitudes of Open and Junior Class Exhibitors; Preliminary Report Number 2. Wisconsin County and District Fair Study.
Christiansen, John R.; And Others
An evaluation of the educational impact of exhibiting at Wisconsin's county and district fairs is presented. To provide this evaluation, information was collected using mailed questionnaires from 263 Junior-Class and 198 Open-Class exhibitors. Data were obtained concerning social characteristics of exhibitors, exhibiting procedures and attitudes, and changes which might be needed at county and district fairs. Sixty-nine percent of the Junior exhibitors and 54 percent of the Open-Class exhibitors maintained that they had learned "much" or "very much" from their exhibiting experience. It is believed that important needs pertaining to education and social acceptance are met by exhibiting at county and district fairs. (DB)
