Local Contest

Exhibits may be entered at any fair which is a member of the Litchfield County Council of Fairs. Contestants may enter their exhibit in as many fairs as they wish until they win first prize. At that time they will be representing that fair at the Litchfield County Council of Fairs Contest in the fall.
