The New York State Fair is an opportunity for fun, leadership and learning. There are two ways for teens to be involved at State Fair.
Teen Leaders (13+) work 6 hours a day in the youth building in a variety of capacities such as: Press Corps, Fashion Revue, Shooting Sports, GPS/GIS, in the Putnam Booth or serve as an Evaluator's Assistant in a multitude of project areas.
Junior Superintendents (16+) work for the state office in longer blocks of time to help run the Youth Building. There is an application process for these positions and you work for the state office staff not Putnam County.
