NEW MILFORD — People interested in entering the 2017 Harford Fair premium book contest should grab their paints, markers, other craft supplies and photos from the Harford Fair, and get busy creating. The entry blank is due Aug. 1 and entries must be dropped off at the secretary’s office on the fair grounds between Aug. 18 and 20.
Designs must be original and can be done in any medium, including a photo collage. The design should represent a variety of the many activities the fair offers, such as animals, crafts, foods, amusements, arena shows and the school house. Included in the design must be “the 160th Harford Fair, August 21-26, 2017.”
There are four classes for entries from preschool to adult and each entry will be judged within its own class. Judging will be based on originality, design, neatness and printability in the eight-and-a-half-by-11-inch cover format. An overall winner, selected from the first place winners in each class, will be awarded $50 and the winning design will be printed on the 3,500 copies of next year’s premium book.
