Another Crow Wing County fair has come and gone. Can anyone tell me the last time the fair premiums were raised? They are low. 4-H members are a large part of 4-H and open class exhibits. Although you can't put a monetary amount on the life skills these kids will gain from their project areas it can get very expensive for parents and other supporters. I have been going to the fair and paying to park for several years now. I know that the grounds upkeep and entertainment cost money, but let's start thinking about raising premiums too.
