DOSWELL—There’s still time to enter the State Fair of Virginia’s 2012 arts, crafts and crops competitions. The deadline for entries is Sept. 7.
This year’s competitions will include fresh produce, pumpkins, honey, preserves, baked goods, sewing, needlework and photography. There also will be some new categories, like the State Fair Special Cookie Competition, which will allow children to enter with their parents, grandparents and guardians.
“These competitions have always been an important part of the State Fair experience, and we wanted to make sure this year’s fair delivered,” said Virginia Farm Bureau Federation President Wayne F. Pryor. “Because we have had a shorter planning period for this year’s fair, some of the traditional competitions will not be available, but we do hope to re-establish those next year.”
Links for forms and guidelines to enter adult and youth competitions can be found at StateFairVa.org/competitions. The forms can be submitted online or printed and mailed with the appropriate entry fee.
