4.0 & Above Program

The 6th Annual 4.0 & Above Program

All of those long hours spent hitting the books are already paying off! In the tradition of “BIG" - The Big Fresno Fair and the Fresno County Office of Education, along with our valued sponsors Friends of the Big Fresno Fair, EECU and Toyota, have partnered once again to give BIG REWARDS to high achieving Fresno County students at the 2016 Big Fresno Fair! The 4.0 & Above Program will provide an opportunity for all Fresno County high school students who have a 4.0 or higher GPA as of June 2016  to come to The Big Fresno Fair for FREE on Opening Day, Wednesday, October 5. First outreach to schools begins in May with follow up in August to confirm participation. Qualified students will receive their 4.0 & Above Program brochure with entry pass in mid-September.

So mark your calendars now and remember to keep up those good grades!

The 4.0 & Above Program allows the Fair and its partners to recognize these students for all their hard work and incredible scholastic achievements. It also provides the opportunity for all Fresno County school district superintendents, their board presidents, plus each public, private and charter high school principal and their site coordinators to encourage students to work hard all year round to keep up their grades for a lifetime of rewards. Scholarships are supported through community and business donations. If you are interested in funding a scholarship for these future leaders of our community, please contact David Nalchajian or Amanda Williams at (559) 227-9999.

In 2015, 8th graders were included in the 4.0 & Above Program for the first time - having a chance to also win scholarships, iPads and bikes! Then 9th – 12th grade students had the chance to win those same prizes PLUS a 2015 Toyota Corolla during the official drawing held in the Brian I. Tatarian Grandstand. Below is the complete list of winners for the 2015 4.0 & Above Program - congratulations to all the winners and participants - keep up the good work and we wish you much success on your academic endeavors!
