Ohio State Fair contest open to kids

| May 15, 2015

REYNOLDSBURG – The Ohio Department of Agriculture reminds parents and children that the deadline for the 2015 Agriculture is Cool! Creative Expression contest is coming up. Ohio children enrolled in school or home schooled during the 2014-2015 academic year are encouraged to capture their personal interpretation of why Ohio agriculture is cool for their chance to win prizes including a trip to the fair.

Entries must be postmarked by Friday, June 5.

Entries, which can include an original video, photograph, drawing, or painting, will be judged in the following age categories. One winner from each age group and category will be chosen:

  • Grades K-2: Photography, Drawing or Painting
  • Grades 3-5: Video, Photography, Drawing or Painting
  • Grades 6-8: Video, Photography, Drawing or Painting
  • Grades 9-12: Video, Photography, Drawing or Painting

All entries will be judged by a panel that may include representatives from the Ohio Department of Agriculture, the Office of the Governor, the Ohio Expo Center, and professionals in the areas of video production, photography, drawing, painting and other visual arts. Judging will be based on the student’s visual representation of the Ag is Cool! theme, if it accurately reflects 21st Century agriculture, creativity and use of Ohio images, and quality of work.

Award winners will be recognized by the Office of the Governor and other state officials at the Ohio State Fair on Wednesday, July 29.
