Encouraging and Rewarding Hard-Working Fresno County Students
What an amazing time we had at the 2019 Big Fresno Fair’s 4.0 & Above Program honoring Fresno County’s hard working students! There were a total of more than 10,500 students who attained a 4.0 or higher to be eligible for the Fair’s 4.0 & Above Program from participating Fresno County schools!
- On Opening Day of the 2019 Big Fresno Fair, eligible students arrived at the Brian I. Tatarian Grandstand to place their name in the tumbler for a chance to win big prizes for their hard work! Prizes included $87,000 in scholarships, iPads, Apple Watches, VISA gift cards and the grand prize - a brand new 2020 Toyota Corolla!
During the 9 years of the 4.0 & Above Program, Fresno County 8-12th grade students have won over $467,000 in scholarships and 9 Toyota Corollas (a $164,000 value), among other prizes! This amazing program would not be possible without the incredible generosity of our sponsors and donors. All prizes are donated by community-minded companies and individuals who believe in rewarding academic excellence.
