On this page we have tried to anticipate questions in order to simplify the process as much as possible.
Under the competition tab one can find a list of all the various competitions. They are divided into the following groups:
General Exhibits – Art, crafts, quilts, wood working, horticulture, preserved foods, baked foods,…
Livestock – Cattle, goats, sheep, swine, poultry, rabbit, llama, display livestock….
In the above sections you can find printable rules and regulation specific to a show. Please note that there are also over-all Fair rules and regulations as well as Division/Department rules and regulations. It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to read over all Rules and Regulation sections and adhere to them completely.
How the entries are placed in the computer during online entries will determine who the premiums are paid to. If the project is done at school and the premiums are to be paid to the school, the school must be listed with the school’s W-9 on the child’s entry. This can get confusing for sure. There is also a difference between livestock entries and other non-livestock entries. We will try to walk you through both. If you run into questions, please call us at 828-687-1414 ext. 210 or 208.
