The Pipestone Discovery Barn has received a 3rd place Agricultural Award of Excellence from the International Association of Fairs and Expositions (IAFE) headquartered in Springfield, Mo. The Award was received for “Overall Agricultural Program for the Non-agricultural Fair-going Public.”
There are a total of 14 Agriculture Award categories, each divided into 5 divisions by attendance, that a Fair or Expo can enter. The entries are evaluated and judged by a team of industry leaders. These individuals are selected from the membership of the IAFE, which has over 1,200 members from around the globe.
The awards were presented during the Excellence in Agriculture Breakfast on Dec. 9, 2014, during the 124th Annual IAFE Convention held in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Sioux Empire Fair and Pipestone Discovery Barn can take great pride in knowing that their event has been selected for this prestigious honor. These awards are sponsored by John Deere, who is an avid supporter of the Fair and Expo Industry around the world.
We want to thank all those volunteered at the Pipestone Discovery Barn to make this such an excellent experience!
