Entries opened Dec. 1 for the 2024 Montague County Youth Fair and will close on Dec. 15.
Last year the fair welcomed a strong number of overall entries with 1,030, up from 757 the prior year. There were 337 exhibitors.
The fair will take place Jan. 3-6, 2024 with activities at the Montague County Agriculture Center, Nocona Community Center and Bowie High School.
After a successful premiere, Leadership Day returns to the fair calendar this year with activities at Bowie High. Kristy Tillman, chairman of the fair board, said since Bowie is out on holiday break, this will offer a larger, more conducive space for all entrants to compete and relax. Events will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Jan. 3, which adds one day to the traditionally three-day fair.
Some of the other changes this year include a $5 fee for each contest. This also will allow the leadership kids to be listed on the pledge sheets.
There will be no extemporaneous speaking this year and it has been replaced with a Montague County Agricultural Advocacy Prepared Speaking contest.
