Booty Trophy Contest Updated 2023

Swain County Agricultural Fair is looking for volunteers! 

We need people who are excited to share their knowledge of Swain County, smile and welcome fair visitors. You, as a realtor, will have the opportunity to socialize with locals and tourists alike. By volunteering at the fair you have the incredible opportunity to give back to the community.

How the Day of Service and Booty Trophy Contest Works 

One point will be awarded for each hour of service your team members provide (minimum of 20 hours). Volunteers will be needed the day before and the day of the Swain County Agricultural Fair which includes: Friday, August 18 and Saturday, August 19, 2023. 

Teams are encouraged to come up with a theme based on the Swain County Agricultural Fair and dress accordingly. You are welcome to use your business name or logo, wear the same color(s), dress up as clowns, cartoon characters, or rodeo figures, for example. Set your own theme and make it fun! Be sure and take a picture of your group before or after the fair and email it to: This will be used in the case of a tie-breaker.

TO WIN: Total points are awarded and the team with the most points wins! In the event of a tie the winner will be determined by the best theme.

The winning team will be featured in the Realtor’s Buyers Guide, news articles and posted on social media sites. Each winning team member will receive a Swain County Agricultural Fair T-shirt too!

The winning team will also be awarded the Swain County Agricultural Fair “Booty” Trophy! This trophy will be placed at the winning team’s office for one year. It will double as a way to collect monetary donations throughout the year. The donations collected will be split 50/50 between the Realtor’s office and the Swain County Agricultural Fair. 

Encourage your employees, co-workers and staff to be volunteers. Not only does the community benefit from your efforts, but volunteers can learn about county agencies, agricultural, youth livestock shows, receive a free T-shirt and enjoy a fun day at the fair.

How to get registered

Choose your team (co-workers, office staff, etc.) and choose a theme.

Individually, decide how you want to volunteer. Examples of volunteer opportunities include parking vehicles, directing traffic, event set-up evening before (begins at 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.), event set-up day of (begins at 7:30 a.m.), event clean-up (begins at 3:00 p.m.), working at various 4-H booths, monitoring educational booths and directing foot traffic. We will do our best to match volunteers with their requested duties. We will need to assign volunteers in an efficient manner that will help to expedite the duties at the Swain County Fair. 

NOTE: Please emphasize the importance of your volunteers fulfilling their commitment. One point will be deducted from your company total for each volunteer who does not show up for his or her assigned event, or who does not stay for the entire assigned time frame.
