The Miami-Dade County Youth Fair kicks off Thursday and we expect a half million visitors of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy the rides, exhibits, student displays, food and agricultural areas. What most people don’t realize amid the family fun, concerts and circus performances, is that the fair is a major fund-raiser for the students in our community.
It has provided more than $10 million in scholarships and prizes for Miami-Dade students during our 62-year history and will contribute more than $300,000 to deserving students this year. We welcome everyone to take part in a true community tradition of wholesome family entertainment, make lasting memories with your children and make a meaningful contribution to students in our community while enjoying your Youth Fair.
Eduardo Cora, chairman, Miami-Dade County Youth Fair
