Missouri State Fair Accepting Nominations

 Help us honor the men and women who have served or are serving our amazing country. The Missouri State Fair is accepting nominations for Veteran/Active Military Honoree of the Day, sponsored by Capital Materials, Retrieving Freedom, Inc., and Starline Brass.

Eleven veterans/active duty service members from Missouri will be chosen from the nominations and honored daily in a Military Flag Retreat ceremony to take place just outside the Historic Administration Building on the Fairgrounds.

Individuals can be nominated using a form available on the Missouri State Fair website. We ask that the form be filled out as thoroughly as possible as this is the information the panel of judges will use to select the eleven honorees (additional space may be used). Nominees must be Missouri residents and available to attend one of the eleven days of the 2024 Missouri State Fair, Aug. 8-18. Once a nomination form is complete, it can be mailed or emailed to the Missouri State Fair marketing office to be entered into the selection process. The deadline to submit nominations is May 27, 2024.
