Teens interested in being part of the 2012 Merced County Fair are encouraged to apply for a seat on the Junior Fair Board by the Dec. 16 deadline.

Junior Fair Board duties include providing input on what teens want to see and do at the fair, assisting with pre-fair planning, set-up and helping during the fair. Applicants don't need any experience at the fair, such as showing an animal or entering an exhibit.

The fair is recruiting teens who want to volunteer their talents for a year by serving on the 12-member Junior Fair Board. Application forms can be picked up at the Merced County Fairgrounds Office, 900 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Merced and also can be downloaded from the fair's website.

Candidates must live in Merced County and be 14 to 19 years of age as of Jan. 1. A GPA of 2.0 or above is required to be eligible to volunteer.

Serving on the board will help fulfill high school community service requirements. Meetings are the second Tuesday of the month and as needed as the fair gets closer. The 2012 fair is June 13-17.

Each Junior Fair Board member is entitled to free parking and admission for one person and one vehicle during the fair.

Junior Fair Board applications must be physically received at the fairgrounds office no later than 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 16. Applications may be hand-delivered, sent by the United States Postal Service or other courier service and should be addressed to "ATTN: Junior Fair Board Advisors." Applications will be stamped with the exact time and date of receipt.

For more information, call the fair office at (209) 722-1507.
