EVENT SUPERINTENDENT

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.

May be asked to provide input on changes to fair guidelines and secure volunteers to assist during the week of the 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 positive adult role models for youth.
