Youth Art Competition
The Farm Museum at the Washington County Fair invites youths ages 7 to 18 to participate in the ninth annual Youth Art Competition. The theme, ‘Going to Market 1850 to 1910’ highlights the changes improved transportation had on towns and farms in Washington County. As trains, canal boats and improved roads were built, farms expanded and villages grew. Each entrant’s original artwork should depict products being grown, shipped to market or available at the local store. Entries should arrive at the Washington County Fair Office between Monday, April 28 and Sunday, May 4. For rules and an entry form, call 518-692-2464 or visit washingtoncountyfair.com.
A public showing of all entries will be held Saturday, May 10, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Farm Museum on the Fairgrounds, Route 29 in Greenwich, N.Y. Winners will be announced that morning. Prizes to be awarded in three age divisions include cash, carnival ride tickets and 2014 fair admission passes.
