GREENE COUNTY — Get into the spirit of the Greene County Fair and win prizes from your hometown newspapers Xenia Daily Gazette, Fairborn Daily Herald and Beavercreek News-Current.
Follow us before, during and after the Greene County Fair with the hashtag #gazettefair.
There will be several contests this year for our readers and followers. Prizes will be awarded for each contest thanks to our prize sponsors, Nick’s Restaurant and Scott Family McDonald’s.
Instagram scavenger hunt
Get involved with our unique Instagram scavenger hunt. The first person to provide this newspaper via Instagram with all of the following photos will win a gift certificate:
– Grab a paper between Tuesday, July 25 and Saturday, July 29 (with one of those dates!) and take your photo with that newspaper showing the date and a Greene County Fair sign somewhere on the Fairgrounds or near there.
– Take a photo of you or your family member getting ready for the Fair. Maybe you are washing your animal, working on your project or packing to go to the Fair.
– Take a photo of yourself in a barn at the Fairgrounds.
– Take a photo of yourself eating Fair food.
– Get your photo taken with a Gazette news reporter during the week of the Fair. Staff will be wearing our newspaper T-shirts on the Fairgrounds.
Send these five photos to one of our Instagram accounts (below). All five photos must be sent from the same account via Instagram. Deadline to complete this contest is noon on Friday, Aug. 4.
