A contest will be held to choose a logo for the 2016 Niagara
County Fair. Above is the winning logo for the 2014 fair, as

LOCKPORT, NY—A logo contest will be held once again for the 2016 Niagara County Fair. Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) of Niagara County announced the 2016 Niagara County Fair Logo Contest is now open for youth ages 5 to 19, which will correspond with this year’s theme, “Once Upon a Time in Niagara — the Fairytale”.

A fairytale is a story about magical and imaginary beings and lands, and young artists are asked to use their “special powers” to design a creative logo that ties in to the theme, which will be used for official Niagara County Fair merchandise and promotional materials.

The logo must be an original, colorful piece of artwork, which can be either hand-drawn or computer generated. There should be no words on the artwork, and it also must be able to be cleanly scanned and reproduced digitally at both larger and smaller sizes. Logo submissions are due at the CCE office located at 4487 Lake Avenue, Lockport NY by Monday, April 18th, 2016 at 4:00 pm.

The top submissions will be put to a community vote on Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County’s Facebook page to decide the first, second, and third place winners. The top logos will receive prizes with the first place logo winning a $100 cash prize, two tickets to the Farm-City Breakfast (The Fairs opening event held Aug. 3rd), and two weekly fair passes. The 2016 Niagara County Fair runs Wednesday Aug. 3rd to Sunday Aug. 7th. Visit for full contest rules.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County is a 501(c) (3), tax exempt organization. Net proceeds from the fair support CCE-Niagara County programming that benefit children, families, farmers, seniors and communities across Niagara County. CCE is an employer and educator recognized for valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities and provides equal program and employment opportunities.
