The L.A. County Fairís Americaís Kids competitions, taking place during this yearís 90th-annual Fair, provides an opportunity for students, Girl Scouts and children to showcase their creative talents. Entries are now being accepted through June 28.
Americaís Kidís competitions will recognize the talent of local Girl Scouts, students and children. Contests include a wide array of categories ranging from family portrait paintings to sewing projects and constructive arts. The Fair is bringing back some of its most beloved competitions such as the largest and smallest vegetables grown, to baked goods, creative writing, ceramics, photography and literature-themed competitions. One of the new competitions in the literature-themed crafts at this yearís Fair is book sculptures. Entries will turn a standard hard-back book into a work of art with only scissors, glue, paint and imagination.
The community-focused competitions will feature a special category highlighting 100 years of Girl Scouts themed Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary Photo Scavenger Hunt. Girl Scouts will have the opportunity to photograph six categories of Girl Scout activities and history, resulting in a story-telling collage. Accompanying the collage will be a 100-word or less reflection of the scoutís experiences while creating their entry.
The entries will be open for viewing during fair hours Aug 31 thru Sept 30.
Students can enter their artwork into the competition by contacting their respective teacher or Girl Scout Troop for an application and entry information. All entries must be postmarked by June 28 and delivered to the L.A. County Fair on or by July 21.
The artwork submitted will be judged under the Danish System of Judging based upon established standards of quality for each product used.
