Every Washington Fair has a long list of unsung supporters, many of whom receive little or no recognition — much like the volunteers who every year show up and do many visible and invisible tasks that are necessary in operating the event. A group that does receive some recognition through publicity is the many buyers of market Blue Ribbon livestock that is auctioned the Saturday of the Fair. Without the buyers’ support, a major event at the Fair would suffer.

The Blue Ribbon Livestock Auction means a great deal to hundreds of youth who exhibit their livestock. Over the years, thousands of rural youth have benefited from the auction. They receive above market prices for their entries. We should write “considerably higher prices.”
