Win $250 in artwork design contest for 2014 county fair

The Nevada County Fairgrounds is sponsoring a contest to find the best artwork to illustrate the 2014 Nevada County Fair theme. This year, there are two themes to choose from — “Simply Fun” or “Lambs, Ham, Quilts and Jams.” The winning art will determine which of these two themes are chosen 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 Jan. 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 P.O. Box 2687, Grass Valley, CA 95945. A complete set of rules can be found on the fair’s website at or by calling the 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 a community contest to determine the theme for the 2014 Nevada County Fair, which will take place Aug. 6-10.
