Iowa State Fair T-Shirt Design Contest

This is where the magic happens! If you've got an awesome idea for an Iowa State Fair t-shirt design, submit it to the Blue Ribbon Foundation. If your design is chosen for print, it will be for sale as a real product that Fairgoers all around the state can wear! Funds from the sale of the t-shirt will be directed to renovations and improvements to 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 9-16. The winner will be announced on May 17. The top three vote-getters will receive an Iowa State Fair prize package.
