Description: Photo taken 1920-21 of children in the Cooksville School school fair parade. The year 1914 saw the establishment of rural school fairs in which children were given choices from various items to take home and plant, or eggs to set. The results were brought back to the annual school fair held each September to be judged. Prizes were also given for baking, sewing, writing, weed and seed collections, insect collections, weed naming, and apple contests.
