2013 Saratoga County Fair Needs Art and Science Projects for Education Exhibits

By Staff Report | Education

SARATOGA COUNTY — The 172nd Saratoga County Fair invites Saratoga County schools to display their art, science and social exhibits at the fair from July 16–21. Students also enter projects on their own.

Three school districts with the best displays win awards of a first prize TV and DVD combination, second and third prizes win one TV and one DVD and four outstanding student entries receive a cash prize. There are 10 honorable mentions for art and 10 honorable mentions for Social/Science. Everyone will receive a ribbon.

Categories are: art, social studies/science, photography, graphic arts and group projects. For judging purposes, there will be two age groups; grades K-6 and grades 7–12. 

Sue Leahey, Kim Leahey and Joan Joyner, education superintendents, believe that the young citizens of Saratoga County are an important part of the community and should have the opportunity to share their school projects with the many thousands of people attending the fair. 

This year, Education will have “craft time” every day at 5 p.m. so come and join the fun.

Set up date for the education exhibits is Thursday, July 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Saratoga Fair Grounds under the Grandstand. Entries for this department will be accepted on this day only.  

For more information on entering, call Sue or Kim Leahey at (518) 885-4084 or Joan Joyner at (518) 587-4622. You may also call the Saratoga County Fair Office at (518) 885-9701. Visit the fair website at
