RALEIGH — The book which provides information for competitions at the North Carolina State Fair has some new information as the 2013 event approaches.

The North Carolina State Fair Premium Book contains the rules, deadlines and entry forms for each competition and explains contest changes and additions. After receiving requests for a special needs culinary category, the State Fair added it to the Premium Book for this year.

Similar to 2012, there are two premium books this year. One lists livestock entries and the other is for general entries.

Books may be picked up in the Administration Building at the N.C. State Fairgrounds. People outside Wake County can contact the entry department to receive competition information and forms by mail.

Information in the premium books is available online at www.ncstatefair.org/2013 .
