EVENT SUPERINTENDENT - (Multiple Species/Events Available, About 9 Positions Open)

The Middle Park Fair & Rodeo is an agricultural community-ran fair with a division dedicated to 4-H youth. 

 

DUTIES / RESPONSIBILITIES:

 

The superintendents in the 4-H division work all year long in order to assure a safe, fun-filled week for 4-H youth.

Must have strong organizational skills and attend June & July fair board meetings. May be asked to provide input on changes to fair guidelines and secure volunteers to assist during the week of fair to assist with clerking, judging and other critical responsibilities.

While it is the fair board’s responsibility to maintain fair facilities, superintendents should have first-hand knowledge of the condition of the barns and equipment used by youth in their programs the most. For this reason, superintendents must monitor fairground facilities used for the project area to ensure buildings, grounds and equipment are safe, secure, well-lit, working properly, adequate, clean and painted, and recommend improvements to the fair committee or fair board.

Most importantly, superintendents must serve as a positive adult role model for youth.
