Bremerton Girl Wins Fair Bicycle

(Port Orchard, WA) – Rachel Flowers of Bremerton, WA was recently awarded the Pepsi-sponsored mountain bike displayed at the Kitsap County Fair and Stampede 2008. Rachel and her family participated in the Kitsap County Fair and Stampede Passport contest during fair and came away the big winner during September’s drawing.

Washington State University Extension in Kitsap County created this youth engaged passport booklet four years ago in order to increase agricultural awareness during fair time. Fair visitors locate passport stations throughout the fair and “stamp it up” for a chance to win. Arno Bergstrom, Kitsap County Extension Director, said many parents commented on how it got them around other areas of the fair they may not have previously experienced. For your chance to experience the fair passport fun, look for new passports distributed at the 2009 Kitsap County Fair and Stampede - Kick It Up!
