First place in each category will receive $300, a trophy & a Great TASTE of a Fair t-shirt. Second place will receive $150 and a trophy. Third place will receive $50 and a trophy.
For the second time, the first place items in each category competed for the FAIRest of All title and an invitation to present the winning food item at the Oklahoma State Fair Chairman’s Party.
