“Simply Fun!” Winners of the Fair Artwork Design Contest
Congratulations to Brittany Zweigle and April DePiazza of Grass Valley for having their artwork chosen to represent the Nevada County Fair and the theme for the 2014 Fair – “Simply Fun!” This year we’ve chosen two different looks – a photograph and a drawing – to represent the Fair’s theme. The photograph will be used on the poster, as well as throughout our advertising campaign. The drawing will be used on the cover of our Competition Handbook, as well as throughout the Fair in the buildings, on gate signs, and on other promotional pieces. Dawn Narvaez of Penn Valley submitted the theme of “Simply Fun!” as part of our community contest in November to determine the theme for this year’s Fair.
