Contest begins for cover of 2017 Yavapai County Fair Book

All Yavapai County students in grades K-12 are eligible to enter the 2017 Fair Book Cover Contest.

The theme is “Carnival, Cows and Pumpkins,” so all artwork should focus on those things.

All artists receive a free fair pass for entering, as long as their entries focus on the theme. The winning artist will win $50, and their school’s art department will receive $100 toward art supplies or tools. Runners-up will earn ribbons for their work.

Entries must be on 8 1/2-by-11 paper, in color, and portrait orientation (short end up).

Contest deadline is Saturday, April 1. Mail unfolded entries in a full-sized manila envelope to Yavapai Fair, P.O. Box 1271, Chino Valley, AZ 86323. Tape entry form to the back of the art. No staples or paper clips.

Print a copy of the entry form at dcourier.com. For questions, call Yavapai Fair at 928-445-0538 or email Yavapaifair@gmail.com.
