Big Tex Choice Awards Application

And the AWard Goes to...

Since 2005, the Big Tex Choice Awards contest has solidified the State Fair of Texas as the top Fair for great food creations. Each year, you and your fellow State Fair of Texas concessionaires create tasty and unique foods for a chance to become a finalist in the annual Big Tex Choice Awards competition. Even after more than a decade of this competition, you never fail to surprise us with your new ideas. Our taste buds are already watering – we can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with this year!
