You are being asked to help the Madison County Fairgrounds win a contest that could help pay for the installation of fans at the fairgrounds.  The fans would be installed in the show barn and hog show ring - especially important to keep spectators, the judges, and the animals stay cooler when the fair rolls around at the end of July each year.

The contest is sponsored by an insurance company, and anyone with a Facebook account can cast a vote.  Miss Madison County Fair Peyton Gehrs tells The Big Z it doesn't take much time or effort to cast a vote.

She says with the uncertainty surrounding state funding, pursuing grants is more important that ever.  You can vote through this link:
