Section 2-7-50

Declaration of purpose.

A legitimate and properly organized agricultural fair is an important educational aid in encouraging agriculture, fostering the development of livestock and promoting interest in community, club and school work. The offering of prizes, premiums and awards for exhibits and demonstrations stimulates competition in these pursuits and serves as an incentive to a greater participation in these activities. Therefore, in order to better promote the development of agriculture in Alabama, it is deemed necessary to provide state aid for livestock shows.
