PREMIUMS
More than $10,000 will be offered in premiums this year in the fair, approximately
$1,200 of which is furnished by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture. The
remaining comes from the gate receipts of the fair.
PREMINUMS PAID OUT
Benton County premium checks will be paid during the week of the fair when vouchers
are issued by each department head, after judging. Vouchers will be paid out starting
on Thursday. The Benton County Fair Association must submit canceled checks to the
Commissioner of Agriculture when application is made for the State of Tennessee to
refund the amount of allotment made by the state.
No voucher will be paid after October 2, 2016. The above will be strictly enforced.
STATE AID TO FAIRS
“From the funds appropriated by the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee for
the purpose of aiding fairs in the paying of agricultural premiums, the Benton County
Fair Association has been allotted its proportionate share by the Tennessee Department
of Agriculture.”
For the purpose of further encouraging fairs to excel in their usefulness to their
respective areas, a Merit Award provision was also made in the appropriation. It is
hoped that the Benton County Fair can have an exhibition sufficiently creditable to
warrant it receiving one of the special Merit Awards in addition to its allotment of state
aid.
