The union staff

The Nevada County Fair took 10 first-place awards, including two featured program awards, at the recent Western Fairs Association convention in San Diego.

Nevada County’s fair received the top award for the “Best Single Day Promotion,” which recognized the Scholar Students Day program, developed in partnership with Dr. Terry McAteer, Superintendent of Schools. The fair also received the top award for its security program, which is under the direction of Lt. Mike Hughes of the Nevada County Sheriff’s Department.

“These awards are the outcome of tremendous effort on the part of staff and volunteers to create the best possible fair for the enjoyment of the people of this county and the fair’s many out-of-county visitors,” Nevada County Fairgrounds CEO Ed Scofield said. “We’re extremely pleased that the Western Fairs Association has seen fit to honor our labors.”

The Nevada County Fair placed first in several categories, including Fair Sponsorship Involvement, Fairtime Employee Program, Event Sponsored by the Fairgrounds – The Draft Horse Classic, Media Kit, Outdoor Advertising, Best New Idea This Year and “Give It Your Best Shot!”

The fair also scooped up eight second-place awards, three third-place wins and six honorable mentions.
