Entries are being sought for the 2012 North Dakota Make It With Wool contest. The contest will be held Aug. 11 at Rheault Farm, Fargo, and will be held in conjunction with the Fargo Park District Fiber Arts Festival.

The purpose of the contest is to promote the beauty and versatility of wool fabrics and yarns. All those entering the competition must select, construct (sew, knit or crochet) and model the garments they enter. The material must be 100 percent wool or wool blend (minimum 60 percent wool or specialty wool fiber) for each fashion fabric used.

The contest is open to all North Dakota residents or those who go to school in North Dakota. Four divisions are offered: Pre-teens (ages 12 and under); juniors (ages 13-16); seniors (ages 17-24) and adults (25+). State winners in the junior and senior division will earn the chance to represent North Dakota in the national contest in San Antonio, Texas in January 2013. The total registration fee is $20 and each contestant will receive wool fabric and other prizes. Full contest rules are available at www. makeitwithwool.com.

For more details and/or registration forms, contact North Dakota MIWW director Becky Harrington at 701-238-1788, rmharring ton@juno.com. The registration deadline is July 27.
