Education Field Trips & Contests
Creative Arts and Essay Contest
The Creative Arts and Writing Contest is an opportunity for Indiana students to creatively educate Indiana State Fair visitors about history, tradition and the importance of agriculture to the Indiana State Fair. Provide a fun opportunity for students in grades K thru 12 to practice or enhance their art and writing skills. This contest is sponsored by the Indiana State Fair Commission and Dow AgroSciences. Students are to submit one creative essay and/or one visual arts piece on the importance of the Indiana Farmer. The submitted piece must educate visitors to the Indiana State Fairgrounds by incorporating elements of history, tradition, and importance of the Indiana Farmer to the consumer’s daily life (consider the importance of technology in 21st Century agriculture, Indiana agricultural benchmarks, commodities, and agricultural leaders). Student winners and teachers will receive awards during the Opening Ceremonies at the 2015 Indiana State Fair. The contest is free to enter.
