Do you have a passion for the N.C. State Fair that rivals all your friends? Are you the go-to person in your neighborhood or office for any and all fair-related information? Do you dream about racing pigs circling the latest deep-fried creation?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, have we got a job for you. It’s time for us to pick another Deep Fried Ambassador, a blogger whose enthusiasm for the N.C. State Fair is close to our own.
We’ve been impressed with the deep-fried passion of our previous winners Ashlee and Suzanne. Last year, Ashlee from the Miss Ashlee blog gave us a photographic tour of her experiences with food, beverages and even premium contests she had never seen before. Our original Deep Fried Ambassador Suzanne, from the Pretty*Swell blog, covered everything from the Turkey Shoot to food and rides, and sooo much more.
Now, we need someone to follow in their awesome footsteps and become an honorary member of the Deep Fried Crew. As the Deep Fried Ambassador, you’ll get to experience the fair like you’ve never experienced it before. First, you’ll get to join us at our pre-fair media lunch Monday, Oct. 10, where we introduce journalists to the newest foods, entertainers and fun at the N.C. State Fair. You’ll also be a VIP at the Deep Fried Triangle Tweetup on Preview Day Thursday, Oct. 13. To top it all off, we’ll load you up with some righteous swag, and give you and a friend tickets so you can come back every day of the fair to blog about your experiences.
Any North Carolina blogger 18 years and older is eligible to participate. To qualify, all you have to do is:
- Publish a post on your blog about why you love the N.C. State Fair and why you would make a great Deep Fried Ambassador. Be sure you let us know how to contact you via e-mail.
- Once you publish the post, do one of three things:
The deadline for entries is Friday, Sept. 30. We’ll send the winning blogger an e-mail on Tuesday, Oct. 4, when we announce the 2011 Deep Fried Ambassador here on our blog, on Facebook and on Twitter.
