According to a press release, The Missouri State Fair is now accepting entries on Instagram in a new Farm Selfie “Felfie” Contest.  The contest, sponsored by AgriMissouri, encourages entrants to take a “felfie,” a photograph one has taken of oneself with farm animals, around farm equipment and/or on the farm.
 
“Contest participants will get to have some fun being creative and showing off their selfie skills while promoting agriculture,” said Missouri State Fair Director Mark Wolfe. “The “Felfie” Contest is a great way to help generate excitement for the Fair and Missouri agriculture.”
 
To enter, participants can post their “felfie” on Instagram, using the hashtag #FelfieMSF. Participants’ Instagram profiles must be public to be viewed for the contest. Entries will be accepted now through July 27.  Complete contest rules are available atmostatefair.com/felfie-contest.
 
The top ten photos with the most likes on Instagram will receive a goodie-bag provided by AgriMissouri and will be displayed in the AgriMissouri Bistro and Market for the duration of the Fair.
 
First, second and third place winners will be chosen by a panel of judges.  First place receives a $50 voucher to the AgriMissouri Bistro and Market and 11 admission tickets to the 2016 Missouri State Fair; second place receives a $30 voucher to the AgriMissouri Bistro and Market and eight admission tickets to the 2016 Missouri State Fair and third place receives a $20 voucher to the AgriMissouri Bistro and Market and four admission tickets to the 2016 Missouri State Fair.
