Ever dreamed of singing at Chevy Court at the NYS Fair? Well, this is your big chance!

The Star Spangled Challenge is underway. The NYS Fair is looking for 13 talented singers to sing the National Anthem. Each of the 13 winners will open the Fair via Chevy Court at exactly 9:58 am.

Competition for the daily slots is underway and continues through Aug. 2. Here's how to enter.

  • Create a video of you singing or playing "The Star Spangled Banner."
  • Upload the video to the competition site on the Fair's Facebook page.
  • Entrants without access to Facebook may email video files to newyorkstatefair@agriculture.ny.gov.

A panel of judges will narrow the entries to the top 20, and a public vote that runs Aug. 9 - 14 will choose the 13 people or groups who will perform. Public voting will be limited to one vote per person.

Winners may be asked to perform at other Fair events and will receive admission tickets and parking passes, as well as a $40 voucher for food at participating Fair food stands.

Good Luck!
