The Interstate Fair selected four young adults to serve as the 2007 Fair Ambassadors. Selected were Ceitleen Albertson (Bonners Ferry), Riley Myklebust (Lewis & Clark High School), Maria Naccarato (Central Valley High School), and Kahla Noel (Cheney High School). The Ambassador's Award, given to any one, any exhibit, or any booth was awarded to Tommy G's Mutton Busting Show in 2007.
Each year the Fair gives five outstanding achievement awards to exhibitors at the Spokane County Interstate Fair for their efforts. This year's Red, White and Blue Award winners were
- Espirit Tech / Alpine College (Auxiliary Building Commercial)
- Mary Lou's Ice Cream (Permanent Structure Food)
- North County Critters (Bay 1 Commercial)
- Savannah's Sweets (Portable Food Booth)
- U.S.P.S. (Outside Commercial)
The Fair also gave a special award to the food or commercial booth that tied into this year's Fair Theme (Un-BEE-lievably Fun for Everyone) most closely. This year's award was given to Spokane Humane Society (Commercial). Congratulations.
Each year the Fair is visited by a State Fair Commissioner who has the awesome responsibility to select one or two outstanding exhibit(s) at the Fair. This year's winners were the Swine Barn (Karen Wilson / Blaine Brown) and Bay 3 (Linda Costich / Leroy and Vicki Nielsen / Louise Wells).
