SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - The deadline is coming up for entering recipes, poems, paintings, quilts and other items in the annual competitions at the New York State Fair.

Tuesday is the deadline to submit entry forms in all the arts and crafts categories. Those entering in the poetry category must also turn in their finished poems.

Last year, more than 2,000 people entered at least one of the fair’s dozens of competitions ranging from livestock to amateur wine. More than 1,000 people had entries in arts and crafts categories.

The competition for jams and jellies is adding a new category - jellies made without commercial pectin. Syracuse gourmet jelly producer Hunter & Hilsberg is sponsoring the new category, which has a $100 prize.

Entry information is on the State Fair’s website (https://nysfair.ny.gov ).
