The Missouri State Fair Foundation is on a mission to educate youth about agriculture. We are excited to partner with the International Association of Fairs & Exhibitions (IAFE) to provide the "Read to Win"
program. Children of all ages can win a FREE Missouri State Fair admission ticket
, a Read to Win
ribbon, and a "Color the Fair
" activity book. To win, youth must read farm and/or fair related books. Charolette's Web
is a perfect example.
