Students of all ages (K-12) can participate in a creative expression art contest. It’s simple and fun! Students can paint a picture, make a video, take a picture, or submit a creative illustration of why they think Ohio agriculture is cool! They can win prizes and get into the Ohio State Fair for FREE! Enter today and your winning student may meet the Governor at the 2014 Ohio State Fair.
In addition, all 4th grade teachers can apply to win a field trip for their classroom!

There, they can enter a random drawing for a chance to win big!
