Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Count number of children attending demonstrations during the fair.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Could not complete the count, as there was too much activity around the demonstration area.There was a naming contest to name the cow and over 1,280 voted. Fair is certain the number of participants interacting with the cow was higher, as many did not take the time to vote.
