Every year millions of people attend county, district or state fairs and tell their friends about the great time they had. Maybe it was your first encounter seeing a cow, riding the Ferris wheel, eating a corn dog, serving as a superintendent for 30 years, or even getting engaged; but it happened at the fair. Now it’s time to share your story with the rest of the state. Your story could be from the past or something even from the present year.
Anyone who wants to share their fair story about a fair in Wisconsin is welcome to enter. Share your fair story in 200-400 words and include the name of the Wisconsin Fair you are referring to. Submit to Wisconsin Association of Fairs by October 1, 2016 via e-mail or hard copy. Entries submitted in prior years, are not eligible to be resubmitted. By submitting an entry, the author transfers to the Wisconsin Association of Fairs ownership of the fair story.
The Wisconsin Association of Fairs is divided into four districts. You do not need to know which district the fair you are speaking of is from; simply include the name of the fair. Entries will be judged against entries from within the same district and a winner selected. A cash prize of $50.00 will be awarded to the winner from each district. The four district winners will then be judged and the first place entry will receive a cash prize of $250.00 and a plaque; second place entry will receive $150.00 and a plaque. The winners will be announced on Monday, January 9, 2017 at our opening session at the annual Wisconsin Association of Fairs Convention at the Chula Vista Resort in Wisconsin Dells. Winners will be notified by December 15 and do not need to be present to win, but will be invited to attend.
