Meet our State Fair Street Team: Deep Fried GRITS!

October 02, 2012By: Category: 2012 N.C. State Fair

This year, we opened up our Deep Fried Ambassador contest to a trio of fair fanatics. We received a lot of great entries from families, co-workers and friends. Thanks again to everyone who sent us an entry to become the 2012 State Fair Street Team. In the end, we could only pick one team to represent the fair this year, and that team was Deep Fried GRITS! (Girls Raised in the South).

Deep Fried GRITS! is made up of a mother, Helen, and her two adult daughters, Annie and Ali. Together they will cover the fair through a blog, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other online outlets.
For first place, the trio wins:

  • A Bumper Crop of Fun prize pack with T-shirts, posters and any other State Fair swag we can find in our office.
  • Each team member will receive a media badge and parking pass, giving them behind-the-scenes access to the N.C. State Fair.
  • Teams also will be invited to be honorary members of the Deep Fried Crew at the official Media Lunch at the N.C. State Fair, Monday, Oct. 8.

Congratulations to Helen, Annie and Ali. We look forward to working with you this fair.You’ll join the distinguished company of our Deep Fried Ambassadors, Suzanne, Ashlee and Amy.
Thanks again to everyone who entered. We hope you will all share your fair stories with us this year.

Old enough to enjoy life, I am a Red Hatter, grandmother, gardener, and amateur genealogist. I am a retired clinical psychologist, master's level, who is disabled with heart disease, but having fun with family and friends. Married over 40 years, I have two grown daughters and three grandchildren. I have learned that grandchildren provide a joy one never knew existed---writing feeds my soul, gardening is therapy, and genealogy research makes me feel like a detective!
