Junior Fair Board

The San Mateo County Fair’s Junior Fair Board was created to provide young adults with an opportunity to develop leadership skills, perform community service, and become aware of business and the operations of the County Fairs. Today, this Junior Fair Board has grown in both size and responsibilities to meet the challenges offered to these young men and women.

As many as twenty members are selected to volunteer throughout the year on behalf of the San Mateo County Fair. Their efforts include assisting at Fair events, providing outreach, assisting Fair visitors who may have special needs, and planning, developing and coordinating events within the fair.

Potential Junior Fair Board members must be high school age students and enrolled in a high school or equivalent program at the time they begin their service on the Junior Fair Board. They must also be a resident of San Mateo, San Francisco or Santa Clara Counties. Interviews may be held throughout the year as deemed appropriate by the Advisors. All new members are notified by a letter from the Advisors and/or San Mateo County Fair management of their acceptance for membership.
