DES MOINES, Iowa -- One of the largest and oldest Iowa events is the Iowa State Fair, and it’s just around the corner.

This year, the fair is putting on a competition for children to be named the Iowa State Fair turkey King or Queen.

Haley Grant, with the Iowa Turkey Federation, joined us on the Channel 13 News at Noon to explain how and when your kids can get involved.

Submissions for King and Queen are May 15 -- July 31 and can be done through Facebook or the Iowa Turkey Federation’s website. Kids must be between 5 and 10 years old to enter.
