MIAMI - Aug. 6, 2014 - PRLog -- The Miami-Dade County Youth Fair will host five days of school field trips in March-April 2015, when students from pre-school to middle school and exceptional classmates of all ages enjoy the excitement of The Youth Fair with free admission. Last year 42,000 Miami-Dade County students attended the Youth Fair’s five school field trip days.

In its 64th year, The Youth Fair annually dedicates the fairgrounds to students by age group in cooperation with the Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Students have the opportunity to explore the fairgrounds, see thousands of exhibits, learn about agriculture, take in the rides, sample the food and tour special events designed just for them.

Youth Fair field trip dates:
March 13, 2015     Elementary grades 3-5, all Regions
March 18, 2015     Middle School grades 6-8, Central Region
March 19, 2015     Middle School grades 6-8, North and South Regions
April 1, 2015          Pre-School, Kindergarten and grades 1-2, all Regions
April 2, 2015          Exceptional students, all Regions

The Youth Fair is open exclusively to students, teachers and chaperones only on the five dates from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The Youth Fair opens to the general public on the above dates at 3 p.m.

To help schools defray the cost associated with educational fieldtrips, Target is offering 3,600 field trip grants of $700 each to K-12 schools nationwide. Applications are available online and are being accepted through noon Sept. 30 at (

Fairgoers will get three extra days of fun at the 2015 Youth Fair, which announced in July that it added a fourth weekend to extend the calendar dates from March 12 to April 5. The Youth Fair will get a chance to rest before and after the Miami-Dade County Public School’s spring break by closing the gates for two Mondays and two Tuesdays, March 16-17 and March 30-31.

The Youth Fair is the only venue in Miami-Dade County where students can showcase their educational, fine arts, agricultural and science achievements all in one place and be rewarded for their efforts. More than 40,000 student projects are exhibited annually to more than half a million families, friends and fairgoers. The Youth Fair is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that awards more than $300,000 annually in college scholarships, cash premiums and awards to local public, private, charter and home school students.  To date, The Youth Fair has awarded more than $10 million to Miami-Dade students to help them achieve higher education. In 2014, it awarded $90,000 in college scholarships, including $7,000 to winners of Miami-Dade County Public School’s inaugural Elie Wiesel Foundation Prize in Ethics Essay Contest.
