2018 Bench Show Award Winner for Best of Show!
The Bench Show is the annual competition for make it, bake it, grow it fair entries. Winners receive a ribbon and cash prize and the person with the most points is called the Aggregate winner. They also get their name on a plaque. The last fair was held on August 18, 2018. Linda Davis is pictured Presenting an Award.
The committee sets the date of competition each year and makes a booklet of categories for entries and rules for the contest. Committees begin meeting in March to set dates and work on the book for the following year.
