Do you love to be creative? Or do you have hundreds of “pins” on your Pinterest boards that you have been meaning to try? Whether its fabric flowers or a purse made from a map, there’s no better reason to begin creating than the 300+ arts and crafts competitions at this year’s Fair!

From woodworking to weaving, Origami to photography, stained glass to sewing, we showcase the talents and creative diversity of Ohioans and offer thousands of dollars in cash prizes!


Win big!

The following are the competitions classes you can enter for a chance to win cash prizes:

Something for everyone

There are also hundreds of divisions within each class, which means there is a competition for every skill level. 

Some of the divisions include: art pottery, antique jewelry, crochet, holiday decoration, scrapbooking, knitting and even Brillo Pad Art! Check out the “Armabrillo” submitted at last year’s Fair!

From potential Pinterest project to blue ribbon

There’s even a division called “Artistic Upcycling – Recycled Creations.” Entries in this division include materials that are used for purposes other than their original use or remade into an object. Look at these wallets made from used cartons that we found on Pinterest! Can you think of other creative ways to turn your trash into treasure? 

Don’t miss this perfect opportunity to change your “potential” Pinterest projects into completed ones! The deadline to enter is June 20
