Differences between the Competition Categories

Junior Division Exhibits
All exhibitors in the Junior Division must reside in or be members of a recognized youth organization consisting of two or more families, located in Chippewa County under adult leadership, have an educational program appropriate to the department(s) entered, and approved by the NWSF Fair Board.

Open Division Exhibits
As a regional fair, open division exhibitors can reside in any county or be of any age.

School Exhibits
School Exhibits are open to Chippewa County Public and Private Schools and Homeschool Groups. Entries are completed by students and are registered and submitted by school staff. Because exhibitors in the school exhibits are not required to pay an entry fee, school exhibitors will not receive a Fair season admission pass.

Lego Pre-Build Contest
Primarily focused on a family-friendly event, this contest is open to anyone. A theme will be presented later-Spring and registration is completed at entry drop-off.

Talent Show
Coordinated by the Eau Claire Children's Theatre, the Northern Wisconsin State Fair Talent Show happens throughout the Fair dates on the WEAU News Front Porch Stage.
