Teachers Encouraged to Enter Students’ Work in the South Dakota State Fair
Huron, SD – The South Dakota State Fair and the Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources encourage teachers to submit student education entries for display in the Arts & Education Building at the 2022 South Dakota State Fair. On average, more than 50 schools participate entering more than 5,000 entries each year.
“For some teachers, it’s a tradition,” said State Fair Manager Peggy Besch. “The education division is a great way to showcase their students’ work. Parents, family, and students love seeing their projects on display in the Arts & Education Building.”
Entry forms are due to the State Fair office by April 16, 2022. The Education Department handbook and entry forms are available online at:https://www.sdstatefair.com/participate/competitive-exhibits/education/
