Coliseum

Name The Coliseum Contest

Built in 1901, the Coliseum has been one of the premier showpieces of the Illinois State Fairgrounds. It was recently declared ‘unusable’ because of structural deficiencies. The Illinois Fairgrounds Foundation jumped into action, soliciting donations to restore the facility. Numerous donations, along with a $1 Million contribution from Governor and Mrs. Rauner, have now enabled the Coliseum to be fully restored and reopened! Part of this reopening also incorporates a brand new name for the Coliseum. The contest is open to current student members of an Illinois 4-H, FFA or Junior Horsemen’s Council chapter.
