[April 26, 2010]  SPRINGFIELD -- Premium books for the 2010 Illinois State Fair are now available online.

HardwareThe books, which explain the rules, entry deadlines and prizes for the fairís more than 8,700 competitive events, are posted as PDF files at Just click on the "Competitions" tab. The premium books are listed in the menu on the left side of the page.

Five books have been published, one each for the Livestock and Junior Livestock contests, the Western Horse Show, the Society Horse Show, and General fair competitions.

Downloadable entry forms also are posted on the site. They can be completed online, saved, and then printed and mailed.

Junior Livestock entries must be submitted to county Extension offices. Because the deadlines vary, exhibitors are advised to contact their local Extension office to obtain the appropriate date for their county. All other livestock entries should be sent to the Illinois State Fair no later than July 1.

July 1 also is the deadline to enter both horse shows. For most other fair contests, including the culinary, floriculture and textile contests, the entry deadline is July 15.

Print copies of the premium books are available upon request. To obtain one, call Durinda Kirby at 217-782-0786.

The 2010 Illinois State Fair will be Aug. 13-22.
