DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Organizers of the Iowa State Fair are encouraging people to submit designs that can be used for concrete ribbons on display throughout the fair grounds.

The contest celebrates the fair's blue ribbon winners. The painted concrete ribbons will be 3½ feet tall.

Participants can be individuals, clubs and companies. Entries must be submitted by May 15, and must include a description and detailed drawing of the paint design. Selected applicants will be contacted by June.

A panel of judges will award prizes on originality, creativeness and overall look. There will be a novice and professional division, for individuals working in graphic design or an artistry-related field.

Winners will receive other goodies including a state fair plaque and admission tickets.

The Iowa State Fair will be held Aug. 8-18.
