Do you like drawing farm animals and barns? If so, we invite you to share your talent in the 2019 Barnyard Friends Drawing Contest, sponsored by OSU Extension and the Williams County Fair!

The contest is open to Williams County youth in Kindergarten through Second Grade for the 2019-20 school year. Drawings must be hand-drawn on an 8.5 x 11” sheet of paper, and be farming-related. Be sure to include name, school, grade, and t-shirt size on the back of the artwork. Participants may use paints, markers, crayons, or color pencils. Only one entry per student please.

Artwork should be submitted to either the OSU Extension Office at 1425 East High Street, Bryan, Ohio 43506, or the Williams County Fair Office at 69 East Main Street, Montpelier, Ohio 43543 by Tuesday, September 3rd at 4:00 p.m. The top three drawings per grade will be awarded a Barnyard Friends T-shirt. All entries will be displayed in the Barnyard Friends exhibit located at the South end of the Dairy barn during the Williams County Fair.
