(Huron, SD) – Entries are being accepted for the “Fair”Cycled Art Contest at the 2016 South Dakota State Fair.

Creations need to be constructed out of ‘recycled’ items, or items already found lying around. New resources can only account for 10 percent of the materials used. Divisions include a table top art division and a yard art division. In each division, there are two age categories, 17 years old and under and 18 years and older.

A first place prize of $50 will be awarded in each division and second place in each division will receive $25. The registration deadline is Aug. 22. Exhibits are due to the State Fair office by Aug. 29, unless prior arrangements have been made.

Entry forms can be obtained online at, by calling (800) 529-0900 or at the SD State Fair office in Huron.

The 2016 SD State Fair will run from Thursday, Sept. 1, through Monday, Sept. 5. Channel Seeds Preview night will be Wednesday, Aug. 31.
