2011 Ventura County Fair announces
2nd Fair Poster Contest for children

Ventura County Fair Youth Poster ContestThe Ventura County Fair is having a poster contest for the 2011 Ventura County Fair. The contest is open to young artists in grades 5 - 12 who reside in Ventura County.

“The Fair brings out the child in everyone,” says Barbara Quaid, Ventura County Fairgrounds CEO, “what better way to express those wonderful feelings than through the imagination of Ventura County Children!”

The theme of the 2011 Fair is “The Bounty of the County” and will serve as the only guideline to the imagery. Artwork may be created in any medium but may not be 3 dimensional.

Cash prizes of $500, $250 and $100 will be awarded to the top 3 winners and every child who enters will receive a pair of Ventura County Fair admission tickets. All children who enter will be invited to ride on the Junior Fair Board float in the Ventura County Fair Parade.

Winning images will be used for the official 2011 Ventura County Fair collectable art poster and for the 2011 Ventura County Fair marketing poster as well as in other marketing materials.

There is a $10 fee to enter. Deadline for Entries is Thursday March 31.

The Ventura County Fair begins on Wednesday August 3. The Fair continues until Sunday, August 14.
