The IPM 2016 Beautification Contest has officially launched!

IPM 2016 Beautification Banner

From now until September 1, create a display utilizing a variety of agricultural products and/or farm implements to show your support for the 2016 IPM.

All displays must promote the theme of “A Fresh Taste of Farming”. Judging will be based on 3 categories:
1) Creativity/originality
2) Quality of construction
3) Overall positive promotion of the IPM and Wellington County.

Two categories are available for entry, based on the size of the display. The Rural category must be approximately 12’ x 12’. The Urban category must be approximately 8’ x 8’.

Prizes for both the Urban and Rural categories are as follows:

  • 1st prize - $300
  • 2nd prize - $200
  • 3rd prize - $100

Displays must be completed by September 1, 2016, and remain in place until September 24, 2016. To be considered, a photo must be submitted to before September 6, 2016.

The first 100 people to submit a photo of their display will receive 2 general admission passes to the IPM!
