The Pike County Youth Fairboard decided to begin the Pike County Youth Fair Sale many years ago to provide more incentive to the youth.
The exhibitor receives one-half the amount over market price in addition to market price.
The remainder of the money goes into the Pike County Youth Fairboard premium account; all youth exhibitors will benefit from this.
