WIN $250 IN ARTWORK DESIGN CONTEST
Submit the winning artwork for the 2014 Nevada County Fair and you could win
The Nevada County Fairgrounds is sponsoring a contest to find the best artwork to illustrate the 2014 Nevada County Fair theme. This year, we have two themes to choose from – “Simply Fun” OR “Lambs, Ham, Quilts and Jams.” The winning art will determine which of these two themes we choose for the 2014 Nevada County Fair. If you’re a talented artist, and you’d like $250, this is the contest to enter!
The contest, which is open to Nevada County residents only, takes place now through Friday, January 17. If you submit the winning artwork, you will win $250 and a 2014 Nevada County Fair package that includes admission tickets, parking and carnival coupons. Additionally, the winning artwork will be used on various Fair promotional pieces, print ads, buttons, banners, posters, and flyers.
Interested artists may use any medium and can submit up to three entries, which must be on 8-1/2 by 11-inch paper. Artists can submit artwork for either or both themes. Entries can be delivered to the Fairgrounds Office at 11228 McCourtney Road or mailed to the Fair Office at PO Box 2687, Grass Valley, CA 95945. A complete set of rules can be found here, or call the Fair Office at (530) 273-6217.
Dawn Narvaez of Penn Valley submitted the theme of “Simply Fun,” and Carol Jarosik of Grass Valley submitted the theme of “Lambs, Hams, Quilts and Jams.” Both theme names were chosen from the more than 185 theme names submitted during our community contest to determine the theme for the 2014 Nevada County Fair, held August 6 – 10.
