Special Awards from Sponsor Organizations
Special awards offer well-earned recognition to outstanding, historically interesting projects that may not be among the small percentage of fair entries that win regular medals or ribbons and advance to the state fair.
Sponsors of special awards submit an online application to participate in the fair, with applications due in mid-October before the fair. Sponsors specify the criteria for their award, attend the fair to judge nominated projects, and participate in the awards ceremony on Friday at the conclusion of the fair. Before the fair, they receive lists of nominated projects and a fair schedule to aid in planning for judging.
