This year’s composition theme is “Family Chores 150-1910 in Washington County” Each entrant’s original work should depict scenes of daily or seasonal family and farm chores during the 19th century in Washington County, New York. During this time in history, families were busy all year with planting, harvesting., maple sugaring, canning, laundry, milking cows, making butter, and cheese, and many other tasks throughout the year. The competition is broken up into three different divisions: Division I: Ages 7-10, Division II Ages 11-14, and Division III ages 15-18. Only one entry per person will be accepted and the size of the entry cannot be larger than 12” x18”. The artistic work can be created using paint, charcoal, pencil, crayon, or marker.
Finished artwork and a completed entry form should be dropped off at the Washington County Fair Office with the artwork clearly labeled with a name, age, address, & phone number. All the submitted artwork will be showcased in the Farm museum until October. Winning submissions will receive fair passes and carnival tickets.
