In addition to the sweepstakes, fair attendees can check out the U.S. Cellular Wireless Warriors arena, an interactive exhibit that showcases the latest wireless technology from Samsung and Google while also testing participants skills in cycling, hand-eye coordination and problem solving in order to win prizes.

“After attracting great crowds at the U.S. Cellular Connection Stage at Summerfest, we can’t wait to bring the Wireless Warrior exhibit to the Wisconsin State Fair,” said Blecha. “Fairgoers can stop by and compete with their friends while trying out some of the latest in cellular technology.”

U.S. Cellular will also be helping to keep all fair attendees’ devices well-charged for every social media post, story upload or family photo. Android and iOS devices can charge up around the grounds with charging stations located at the following spots:
