The Jackson Apple Festival will be holding its annual Theme Contest for the 80th edition of the Festival -- and the public will have the opportunity to not only nominate possible themes, but also choose the winner via a live vote on Facebook.

Anyone wishing to submit a theme may mail it to the following address: Jackson Apple Festival, c/o Theme Contest, P.O. Box 488, Jackson, Ohio 45640, or submissions also can be sent by email to the following address: All those making submissions should include their names and phone numbers. Entries should be limited to two sentences or less. All entries must be received by May 14.

All entries will be narrowed down and a live vote will take place on the JAFE Facebook page to pick the winning theme. The live Facebook voting will then start on Monday, May 17 and will end on Monday, May 31. The winner will receive a check for $100.
