State Fair Youth Poster Contest

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture will conduct a statewide poster contest at the agriculture fairs.

Participating fairs will hold its own contest and submit one certified poster from each age group to the state level for additional judging and cash prizes.


  1. Only one poster may be submitted per exhibitor, per age group. There will be three state competitions: ages 8-11, 12-14, and 15-18. Exhibitors must be in one of these age groups as of June 1 of the current fair season to qualify.
  2. The poster size must be 14 x 22 inches or 14 1/2 x 22 inches, equivalent one-half of a standard poster board. Other sizes will not be accepted for judging at the state level.
  3. This year’s theme is “Imagine the Opportunities”. Contestants are asked to submit artwork that celebrates the ways in which the commonwealth’s diverse agriculture industry has shaped our communities and contributed to Pennsylvania’s standing as a worldwide leader in agricultural, food and lumber production.

All poster entries will become the property of the Department of Agriculture for possible future promotional activities for the Pennsylvania Farm Show and Pennsylvania State Association of County Fairs.  Any duplication of posters from previous years will be disqualified.
