COLUMBUS — The Ohio State Fair has been named among the “Best State Fairs” in the 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest, sponsored by USA TODAY.

The 10Best Readers’ Choice Award contest launches new categories every other Monday, at noon, revealing each category’s 20 nominees. After four weeks of voting, the contest closes on the 28th day at noon.

Winners revealed

On the Friday after voting ends, winners are revealed. Rules allow the public the right to vote online for one nominee per category, per day.

Nominees for all categories are chosen by a panel of relevant experts, which include a combination of editors from USA TODAY; editors from 10Best.com; relevant expert contributors; and sources for both these media and other Gannett properties.

The nomination panel for each award category is displayed on its associated contest page. All voting is digital and the 10Best Readers’ Choice Award contest is accessible on the 10Best.com website.

Broadly promoted

While the 10Best Readers’ Choice Award contest lives on 10Best.com — a standalone travel media site — it is promoted across USA TODAY Travel Media Group’s digital and mobile products, as well as via social media.

Nominees are also announced and promoted across USA TODAY departments, and through Gannett media outlets, including the websites of its local newspapers and television stations.

The 2016 Ohio State Fair will run July 27-Aug. 7. You can see and share the full list of winners at http://www.10best.com/awards/travel/best-state-fair/.
