Nominated Livestock Information
All nominations received have been opened! If you submitted state livestock nominations, make sure you are listed under your county and watch for your confirmation letter to arrive in the mail. Letters are mailed on the evening of the business day each nomination packet is opened and processed. If your nomination is complete, you are all set to actually enter the state show in which you would like to participate.
As state livestock nominations are received and processed, reports will be posted regarding the status of a family's nominations. Check the reports below to make sure you have complete nominations on file. If you find a discrepancy, please call or email Lexie to resolve it. The contact information is on the bottom of each report. If there is a red "No" in the complete nomination column, you have an incomplete nomination on file and will need to correct it by the deadline, or the animal will be ineligible for the Grand Drive and KJLS.
If your nomination is incomplete, an email was sent the address on your paperwork. You will also be receiving a confirmation letter in the mail stating the specific animals for which nomination materials were received and how to correct an incomplete nomination.
Don't forget to get entered! Nomination is only the first step in being eligible to show in the Kansas State Fair Grand Drive or KJLS. You must officially enter and pay the entry fees through each specific show in order to actually exhibit. The entry systems for both shows are open now! Direct entry links can be found on the bottom of the page.

- If "YES" is in the Complete Nomination on File column, your nomination is complete. Please remember this is NOT an entry for the individual shows. To officially enter, please visit the Kansas State Fair and/or KJLS website and use the specific entry process set forth by each show.
- If "NO" is in one of the columns, your nomination is incomplete. It could be due to various reasons: lack of form(s), missing signatures, missing nomination fee, missing DNA envelope, no YQCA certificate, etc. Letters will be sent to you informing your family of what steps need to be taken in order to complete your nomination. Please resolve your incomplete as quickly as possible. Any animals that remain incomplete after the correction deadline will be ineligible for both shows.
- Exhibitors - you must have a current youth PQA or YQCA number at the time of nomination that will be valid through state shows for your nominations to be complete. Make sure you have a "YES" in the PQA/YQCA column.
Don’t forget to ENTER! Please remember, A COMPLETE NOMINATION DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN ENTRY. Having a complete nomination only makes you eligible to enter and show in the Kansas State Fair Grand Drive and KJLS! Exhibitors MUST officially enter the show in which they would like to participate, as well as pay the entry fees by the deadline, in order to exhibit. Both shows are doing online entries again this year, so exhibitors are encouraged to try to enter early in order to avoid any “technical” difficulties. Below are the entry deadlines. Click each show to be directed to their entry information. Please contact the show directly with entry questions.
