Do you have what it takes to create an awesome design for a 2022 Iowa State Fair t-shirt? Submit your design today! The Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation t-shirt contest is underway and there is still plenty of time to submit your design. Designs are due THIS SUNDAY, May 1 and if your design wins it will be created and sold at the 2022 Iowa State Fair! How cool is that?


Funds from the sale of the t-shirt will go towards renovations and improvements to the Fairgrounds. However, the top three winners will get prizes too!

1st place:

  • Your shirt design is produced to sell at the Iowa State Fair
  • 2 t-shirts, 2 gate admission tickets, 2 Fair Value packs, 2 tickets to the Grandstand concert of your choice, $50 in food coupons and parking for a select day at the Fair

2nd place:

  • 2 gate admission tickets, $24 in food coupons and parking for a select day at the Fair

3rd place:

  • 2 gate admission tickets and $25 in food coupons


So, how will you win? Well, a selection committee will choose the top 5 designs and those designs will be posted on the Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation’s website and Facebook page. All you have to do is get “likes” on your t-shirt design on Facebook or get votes on our website.  Voting will be open from May 9-16 and the winner will be announced on May 17.

Don’t forget to submit your design by May 1… Who will win this year?


Here is last years design. Animals, food, rides, or fun - it's up to you to decide what should be on the t-shirt!
