Blue Ribbon Projects Contest

Submit Here


Compeer Financial knows how much you love your fair and how much you’ll miss it during these challenging times. That’s why we are proud to announce the Blue Ribbon Project Contest. We want to recognize 4-H and FFA members who have been working hard all year on their projects, even without a fair this year. Submit a picture of your projects – from cooking, to electricity to livestock and everything in between and submit a brief description of what your project means to you and why. The first 1,000 submissions will receive a free t-shirt.

Grand Champion Winners
Two winners from each state in our territory (Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin) will be selected as Grand Champion Winners. One winner will be selected from the 5-7 age group and one winner will be selected from the 8 and older age group. These winners will receive $500 and a $500 donation in their name will be sent to the 4-H, FFA, county fair or food pantry of their choice.


Marketplace Winners
There will be four winners from each marketplace. Please see map to determine what marketplace your entry will be submitted to. Two winners will be selected from the 5-7 age group and two winners will be selected from the 8 and older age group. These winners will receive $100 and a $100 donation in their name will be sent to the 4-H, FFA, county fair or food pantry of their choice.
Contest will be split up for age group 5-7 and 8 and older.
Ages 5-7: Please submit a picture and a brief description of your project and what your project means to you and why. Parents please help with the submission but please use your child’s own words.
Ages 8 and older: Please submit a picture and brief description of what your project means to you and why.

Essays will be judged on how well you share your project:
• Using creativity

• How well you describe what your project means to you and why

Pictures and descriptions will be accepted until midnight on August 1, 2020, and the selection process completed by August 17. Winners will be notified via email the week of August 17.

EVENTS UPDATE

COVID 19 Impact
Scheduling Updates

For the first time in its nearly 123-year history, the Northern Wisconsin State Fair (NWSF) will not go on as planned. Essential to this year’s preparations are the directives of county, state, national and international health agencies, and the ever-evolving COVID-19 pandemic we find ourselves in.

Due to the limitations placed on large public gatherings in terms of logistics, size, and first and foremost, the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, vendors, fair-goers, exhibitors and their families, we have made the very difficult decision to postpone the 2020 NWSF previously slated for July 8-12. We are now working harder than ever to prepare for the 2021 NWSF scheduled for July 7-11 with this year’s Main Stage entertainment already locked in for the new year at the Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds in Chippewa Falls.

2021 Main Stage Lineup:

  • Wednesday, July 7th: Trace Adkins
  • Thursday, July 8th: Hairball
  • Friday, July 9th: LANCO
  • Saturday, July 10th: Grand Funk Railroad and Blue Öyster Cult
  • Buy Tickets Online Today
  • Your 2020 Advance Ticket is Good for 2021

We will be hosting a virtual tribute on the NWSF website during the week of the originally scheduled 2020 NWSF, July 8-12, to shine a spotlight on all those that truly make this event “A Family Affair.” From exhibitors to sponsors, and everyone in between, our hope is to unite our community and spread some joy through the virtual fair. Everyone is invited and we welcome you to visit our Facebook page and website for further updates on the virtual fair. If you would like to contribute to this tribute by sending a picture of you and your exhibit (or just the exhibit) to this link - you can still be a part of the show!

For 2020 NWSF Ticketholders:

  • Your 2020 Advance Ticket is Good for 2021
    • If you purchased a Main Stage ticket these tickets will be good for 2021: Trace Adkins (July 7th), Hairball (July 8th), LANCO (July 9th), and Grand Funk Railroad and Blue Oyster Cult (July 10th)
    • If you purchased a General Fair Admission ticket these will be good for 2021 (If you purchased a 5-day wristband it will be good July 7-11, 2021 and if you purchased a One-Day ticket it will be valid for the day you select for 2021)

This would have been the 123rd year of the Northern Wisconsin State Fair serving the Chippewa Valley. Each year the fair offers a plethora of family-fun activities and big-name artists known across the world. From agriculture, to food, carnival rides and games, educational exhibits, vendor shows, and more, the Northern Wisconsin State Fair is truly a “Family Affair.”

Like many other industries, the Fair and Festival industry has taken a severe financial hit because of this unprecedented pandemic.To keep the Fair alive, the Northern Wisconsin State Fair Association is reaching out to its community for any donations that can be made. If you are interested in donating, please follow this link. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

The NWSF Office is closed to the public. To make things easier, please use email (dbaier@nwsfa.com) as a first option for any general questions on events, questions about tickets or if you are looking for a job during the 2021 NWSF. You can also call the office at 715-723-2861 Ext 101 and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

Please check our website and our Facebook page for continuing updates.

Together we will get through this.
