“NDSF works hard to be one of the premier fairs in the country and KK BOLD does our best to show them off,” said Stephanie Schoenrock, KK BOLD vice president. “KK BOLD has worked with NDSF for over 12 years.  We work well together and have seen a lot of success in the program that we’ve built. The recognition from the advertising awards are always nice to see, but we enjoy seeing the event continue to grow even more.”

Our congratulations go out to the North Dakota State Fair for the continued and plentiful honors. They’re well-deserved, and if they continue at the current rate, you may need to invest in a bigger mantle.
