KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The Alaska State Fair this year will pay return postage fees for some creations sent in by Ketchikan residents for judging in the competitive exhibits.

Alaska State Fair coordinator Pamella Meekin confirmed to the Daily News on Friday that postage can be paid for Ketchikan residents' submissions, depending on the type of object being mailed.

According to Meekin's email, the fair will pay return postage for "crafts, handwork, sewing, etc." but "not large furniture items or heavy sculptures."

Exhibit categories at the fair include art, baked goods, canning, spirited beverages, photography, special contests, creative arts/crafts/woodworking, clay arts, fiber and fleece, handwork and needlework, quilts and sewing, according to information on the Alaska State Fair website.

 Entries must be mailed by July 24. The Alaska State Fair is scheduled to run from Aug. 20 through Sept. 6 in Palmer.
