Clyde Boatwright Award

The Clyde Boatright Award — named for the late Idaho senator who was a longtime fair board member — is given to community leaders "whose generosity has touched all parts of the Inland Northwest through numerous donations and participation on many levels to the betterment of the Kootenai County Fairgrounds, its leaders and members of the community".

Each year the North Idaho Fair & Rodeo Foundation Board of Directors selects a recipient for the Clyde Boatright Award. The person(s) represents the spirit of giving of oneself and one’s resources to the benefit of the Fairgrounds as it follows the mission statement of the Foundation. The Fair Foundation raises awareness of the Fairgrounds and raises funds for capital improvements at the Fairgrounds and education opportunities for area youth.
