Michigan GROWN, Michigan GREAT Will Offer Selfie Contest During Fifth Third Bank Michigan State Fair to Benefit Food Bank of Eastern Michigan


Fairgoers will have the chance to win a $250 Kroger gift card each day and donate to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan during the Michigan GROWN, Michigan GREAT selfie contest held during the Fifth Third Bank Michigan State Fair, September 1-5. Michigan GROWN, Michigan GREAT invites guests to take a selfie with a farmer during the Fair and post it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #migrownmigreat for a chance to enter.

Each guest who enters a selfie in the Michigan GROWN, Michigan GREAT contest will earn an entry for the $250 Kroger gift card awarded each day. Michigan GROWN, Michigan GREAT will also donate $1 to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan for every selfie shared using the hashtag for up to 5,000 photos.

Farmers will meet and talk with fairgoers at the Kroger Michigan-Made Pavilion, where guests will find food and other products provided by Michigan farms and small businesses. The Michigan State Fair will take place at Suburban Collection Showplace, 46100 Grand River, Novi.

“We’re excited to offer this opportunity for fairgoers to connect with local farmers,” said Steve Masters, executive director for the Fifth Third Bank Michigan State Fair. “Since the fair will be held in Novi, we expect to have many parents interested in asking farmers questions about food quality and safety. Farmers are a dependable source for this type of information because they are the starting point for Michigan’s fresh foods and other agricultural products.”
