The Fair Bear Creative Writing Competition is a themed contest open to fourth, fifth, and sixth graders throughout the state.

Students write stories to compete for the best in each grade level at their school. These winners progress to compete for best in the school system. The system winners are forwarded to the Georgia National Fair to compete against stories from all over Georgia. The top three winners from each grade level win a trip to the Fair to accept their awards and listen as the Grand Prize Winner is announced.
