Nebraska State Fair receives recognition

Saturday, December 10, 2011

The Nebraska State Fair has received a first-place Award of Excellence from the International Association of Fairs and Expositions, headquartered in Springfield, Mo., for the fair’s partnership with Case IH in Grand Island.
“We were delighted to finish first with our partnership with Case IH in Grand Island,” said Shaun Schleif, Nebraska State Fair marketing and sponsorship director. “Case IH provides free combine rides at our fair and, over the past two years alone, has given in excess of 8,000 free rides to folks from all over Nebraska who normally would not have a chance to do so.”
The entries are evaluated by a team of industry leaders selected from the more than 3,000 members of the International Association of Fairs and Expositions.
“We are so very pleased to have Case IH as a sponsor of the Nebraska State Fair,” Schleif said. “As a major Grand Island employer, we consider the partnership a perfect fit.”
The Nebraska State Fair received second place for Overall Commercial Agricultural Exhibitor and full-page full-color newspaper ad. Third-place awards were won for the use of QR codes to promote agriculture, the kid’s meatball-sandwich-eating contest and a general display photo or photo series at the 2011 event.
The awards were presented on Nov. 29 during the Agricultural Awards Breakfast at the 121st annual International Association of Fairs and Expositions convention in Las Vegas.
