The St. Croix Valley Foundation (SCVF) is pleased to announce that the online grant application is now available for Music Education programs for K-12 students in St. Croix Valley schools. 

The Music Education Fund of the St. Croix Valley Foundation was established by Nyda Swanson in 2002.  The widow of Earl Swanson, former CEO of Andersen Corporation, saw the St. Croix Valley Foundation as a way to enhance the quality of music education programs for children throughout the St. Croix Valley region’s schools.  The St. Croix Valley Foundation helped Nyda establish a special endowed fund that provides annual grants for music education activities in perpetuity; SCVF distributes these grants each fall.

Public and private schools located in Washington and Chisago counties in Minnesota and Burnett, Pierce, Polk and St. Croix Counties in Wisconsin are eligible to apply.  The grants range from $500 to $5,000 and are evaluated based on innovation, need, impact, goals, and budget.  This year, the SCVF plans to award an estimated $33,000 to music education programs throughout the Valley.  

The online application form is available on the St. Croix Valley Foundation website:  Proposals may be submitted from now until September 30, 2016 and awards will be announced in December.

The St. Croix Valley Foundation is a regional philanthropic organization that includes local affiliated funds dedicated to building lasting resources that serve the people, communities and environment of the St. Croix Valley region.  For more information, please contact Angie Pilgrim at or 715.386.9490. 
'Every Person Has A Fair Story' Contest Submission Deadline at 12:00 AM on 10/1/2016
Start Time: 10/1/2016 12:00:00 AM
End Time: 10/1/2016 12:00:00 AM

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.

For more information or to obtain an entry form on the second annual “Every Person Has A Fair Story” contest, contact Ann M. Webb, Pierce County Fair Manager at 715-273-6874 - or visit the Fair’s website at: 

Maybe make your own story this year by attending the 2016 Pierce County Fair scheduled for August 11-14, 2016. “Going for the Gold at the Pierce County Fair” is this year’s theme. Like us on Facebook at “Pierce County Fair and Fairgrounds (WI)”
