Rains County Agrilife Plans Fair Judging Class May 8-9

Texas A&M Agrilife Today

Rains County Agrilife Extension Agent Sarah Latham says Agrilife plans a class for fair, festival and event judges on Monday and Tuesday, May 8-9 in Emory.

Sarah says the training session will allow qualified judges in fine arts and homemade foods to serve in counties other than their own home county. In fact, in many cases, it's best if judges are from outside of the county so that they're less likely to be accused of favoritism.
