Ag Fair Is Best in Show

The Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Society won four awards including the Best of Show honor at the 2009 Massachusetts Agricultural Fairs’ Association Media Awards competition held this month in Marlborough.

The fair’s poster, by the Vineyard Gazette’s Morgan Lucero, was awarded best of show.

The fair also received two first place awards in the advertising specialties and poster categories, and two third place awards in the premium books and potpourri (special promotions) categories — among all medium-sized fairs. The competition drew a record 98 entries.
