The deadline for those wanting to enter the Missouri State Fair’s “Chicken Dance” amateur video contest has been extended to July 19.
Videos should be no longer than one minute in length and should incorporate some of the traditional Chicken Dance moves. Actual Chicken Dance background music may also be used or contestants may sing or play the tune on an instrument. Fair Director Mark Wolfe said requirements to enter the contest include, “unique dance moves, a sense of humor and a video recorder” and noted the contest fit in with the fair’s theme of “Chicks Dig It.”
“The 2013 theme offers a fitting opportunity to combine agriculture and fun into a video competition,” Wolfe said.
Videos may be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org in a .MOV, .AVI or .MP4 format or as a YouTube video. Entrants must include their name, address and telephone number to be considered. The wining video will be announced July 26 and will be shown on the screens at the Pepsi Grandstand during concert intermissions.
The winner will also receive two tickets to Chris Cagle’s concert, Aug. 8.
