4.0 students




All of those long hours spent hitting the books will pay off for Fresno County students at the 2024 Big Fresno Fair as part of the 4.0 & Above Program! This program invites all 8th – 12th grade students in Fresno County, whose GPA is 4.0 or above as of June 2024, to The Big Fresno Fair for FREE on Wednesday, October 2nd for this rally-like event honoring them.

The 4.0 & Above Programs was established 12 years ago in partnership with the Office of the Fresno County Superintendent of Schools to not only recognize all 8th – 12th grade Fresno County students with a 4.0 GPA or higher as of the last grading period, but to provide them with a chance to win amazing prizes!

Qualified 4.0 & Above students will have the chance to win scholarships, laptops and more! Qualified 9th – 12th grade students even have the chance to win a brand new Toyota Corolla! Students must be present to win!

Here's How to Participate:

Step 1: Make sure you are a Fresno County 8th – 12th grade student.
Step 2: Make sure you have a GPA of 4.0 or higher as of June 2024
Step 3: Mark Your Calendars for October 2, 2024 at 6:30 p.m. Come to the Fair and put your entry ticket into the tumbler for your chance to win! A flyer with your admission ticket to the Fair and your drawing entry ticket will be mailed to your school in September. Be sure to ask your school for yours!
Step 4: Be sure to come to the Fair on October 2 for your chance to win! Remember, students must put their drawing ticket in the tumbler and be present if their name is called to win!
