Those surveys are part of a project carried out by the University of Illinois Extension and the Illinois Association of Agricultural Fairs. Bill Fugate of the fair association says the results will be used to seek continued funding from state lawmakers.

The project began in June at the Greene County Fair and continues through early September in DeKalb.

Other counties where fair surveys will be conducted are Champaign, Clark, Fayette, Hamilton, Lake, Marshall, Mason, Massac, Mercer, Monroe, Richland and Whiteside.
