The Isle of Wight County Fair was honored for the second year in a row at the Virginia Association of Fairs Conference in Hot Springs.
Representatives from the Isle of Wight County Fair Committee submitted 17 marketing items for judging in the VAF Communication Awards.
The IW Fair won 13 communication awards, earning the county the overall second-place title for mid-sized Fairs in Virginia.
First-place awards were received for the fair map, a photographic essay, a New Age scrapbook created by Pat Hodge and a radio ad created by Eagle 97.
Second-place honors were awarded for billboard design, website, advertising/merchandise and pageant book.
Third-place awards were given for best magazine article, media scrapbook, fair poster, fair theme and fair t-shirt design.
“With approximately 50 Virginia fairs represented at this event, it is an honor to be No. 2 in the state for mid-size fairs,” said Darlene Keyt, fair coordinator, who noted that the county had missed first place by only a point. “That’s just the motivation we needed to get going for 2012.”
The 2012 Isle of Wight County Fair is scheduled for Sept. 13–16 at Heritage Park in Windsor.
