Contests

Landscape Contest

Theme: TBA

Sponsored By: Ruppert Landscape
The Great Frederick Fair is featuring its twenty-fourth annual Ruppert’s Landscape Contest as another way to show the diversity of agriculture in Frederick County. This program is dedicated to educating the public about landscaping within the agriculture industry as well as to promote the landscaping industry before an audience of 250,000 spectators. Various sites on the grounds have been designated to be temporarily beautified with landscape designs by both students and professional landscapers. Not only will these areas be greatly enhanced but, they will also provide ideas and educational information to spectators.

Landscapers are encouraged to use the theme when designing their areas. The contest has two divisions–one for students and one for professionals. In addition to improving the grounds, the landscapers have the opportunity to earn cash prizes. This is an excellent way for landscaping companies to advertise in front of a captive audience.
