There are several new competitions being offered for 2018:

Barn Quilts - A barn quilt is a basic quilt pattern painted on a piece of wood, large and bright enough to be seen from a distance. They are often inspired by fabric quilt patterns and are generally one block of the pattern.

Graphic Design - The Tennessee Valley Fair will be celebrating our 100th anniversary in 2019! Help us celebrate by creating a poster that captures the fun, excitement, and traditions of our Fair! Winning designs have the chance to be used for future promotions for the Tennessee Valley Fair.

Miss Senior - A pageant for the age of elegance, the Tennessee Valley Fair Miss Senior winner will advance to the Tennessee Senior America Pageant.
