The Miami-Dade County Youth Fair has grown to be one of the most successful fairs in the nation, in large part because of the hundreds of volunteers and due to our relationship with schools. Their efforts this year resulted in almost 600,000 guests enjoying wholesome entertainment, good food and newly minted memories to take home.
More than 40,000 students from public and private schools displayed their talents and projects — offering a glimpse of gifts from the land and farm animals, creative fine arts presentations and futuristic robots and other engineering feats. The Youth Fair presented them and other students with more than $350,000 in college scholarships and cash prizes.
We are proud of our accomplishments. Our guests came together over 18 days without a single incident or the expense of a single tax dollar to enjoy the best our community has to offer.
We give our thanks to everyone involved.
Robert Hohenstein, president and CEO, Miami-Dade County Youth Fair& Exposition, Miami
