Dear UUFW children & youth,1st–12th grades, and adults,
In 2016, many of our UUFWC children and youth and adults submitted artwork to the Wayne County Fair. the subjects of the entries were racial justice issues. The Fair is still permitting the display and sale of Confederate flag memorabilia this year, and, in general, our country is in dire need of actions that will thwart the political and social hate that plagues people of color and immigrants daily.
The Racial Justice Team would again like to ask members to consider submitting artwork and/or photography to the Wayne County Fair. The themes we are encouraging are similar to those in 2016–social and racial justice and human rights.
Here are links for the Fair’s on-line premium book: http://
and the entry form: http://

If you’re able, print this entry form for your use. If not able, we will have forms available at the Fellowship starting Monday, July 22 through Thursday, Aug. 1.
The deadline* submitting an entry form is August 3rd. Entry fee is free for children age 17 and under. Adults 18 and over fee is $20.00. *This deadline is just for the entry form. Actual artwork or photography entries are not due until September 4 & 5.
If needed, Justine Sherwood will collect completed entry forms and deliver to the Fair. There will be an envelope in the Fellowship lobby for your forms. Please contact Justine Sherwood if you have any questions or need help with any of this.
Many of you will remember the wonderful artwork submitted in 2016 https://drive.google.com/open?
