Iowa State Fair T-Shirt Design Contest

The Blue Ribbon Foundation is sponsoring a T-Shirt Design Contest. We invite you to come up with innovative designs that capture the essence of the Iowa State Fair. Keep it original and be creative. We can't wait to see your masterpiece!

If your design wins, the T-shirt will be for sale in the official Iowa State Fair Store. Proceeds from the sale of the T-shirt will support our mission of improving the historic Fairgrounds.

To enter, send us your T-shirt design by May 1. A selection committee will choose the top five designs. Those designs will be posted on the Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation’s website and Facebook page with voting via Facebook “like” or online via our website.  Voting will be open from May 8-14. The winner will be announced on May 15. The top three vote-getters will receive Iowa State Fair prize packages.
