2022-2023 Oakland County Fair Junior Advisors

2022-2023 Oakland County Fair Junior Fair Advisor Application

Thank you for your interest in becoming part of the Oakland County Fair Junior Advisors. We are excited about expanding the involvement of our youth in the planning, preparation and presentation of the annual Oakland County Fair. Candidates must be age 13 – 21 as of 1/1/23(Fair age), and still showing as a youth at the Fair.

The purpose of the Junior Advisors is to provide young adults with an opportunity to develop leadership skills, perform community service, become aware of the business and operations of the Oakland County Fair, and to act as ambassadors between the Fairboard and youth.

Requirements:

  • Complete the Junior Advisor application for the 2022-2023 term. The application must be turned in to the Fair office no later than 4:00 on September 16, 2022. You may mail it in, bring it in person or complete it online and email it.
  • You must meet the age requirements stated on the application.
  • If elected for the 2023 Oakland County Fair, the term will begin at the September 2022 Annual Fairboard meeting and it will run through the September 2023 Annual Fairboard meeting. You will receive a phone call from the Area Coordinator after the September vote to inform you of the voting results.
  • Attend at least 4 regular Fairboard meeting before Fair begins. We welcome you to attend all of them. The Board meets at 6:30 on the 3rd Monday of every month, with the exception of February. This date is yet to be determined.
  • Attend 2-3 meetings with the Area Coordinator before the beginning of Fair to plan your activities. The Area Coordinator will be flexible with your schedules and try to schedule meetings such that all participants can attend.

Conduct yourself in a courteous and respectful manner, exhibit good sportsmanship, provide positive role models for all youth and adults and act with personal integrity at all times. Appropriate dress does not include wearing the Fairboard “green shirts.” You will be given Jr. Fairboard shirts.
