How To Enter a Competition
Everything you need to enter a competition can be found in the Premium Book. Find your category below, open the file and find the rules for your competition.
The Premium Book is your resource for finding all the rules and deadlines for entering competitions at the N.C. State Fair. Click on the competition name to see the rules for that category. Again this year, we have created a separate premium book for livestock categories.
The North Carolina State Fair Premium Book is "Going Green" in 2014! All premium book information will be exclusively online.
