2021 Litchfield County Contest

Sponsored by Litchfield County Council of Fairs

Theme

Animal Friend Accessory made from Recycled Material

Overview

Contest is open to all residents of Connecticut. Prizes will be awarded in two divisions at each fair:

  • Youth (up through 15)
  • Adult (age 16 and over)

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. If it is found that the contestant has entered and won first prize in more than one Litchfield County Council Fair, they will be disqualified from participating in the Litchfield County Council of Fairs Contest in the Fall of 2021. If for any reason the first place contestant cannot participate in the Fall contest, the second place winner of that fair will be the representative.

First prize winners at each fair in both the Youth and Adult Divisions will be awarded blue rosettes by the Litchfield County Council of Fairs. Please contact the Fair you are representing for information about the dinner, time and place of the Fall meeting.
