Megan’s Law Form & Valid ID:

Before you proceed with the application, please download and fill out the Megan’s Law form. There will be a field in the application to upload and include your filled out form. The media credential application cannot be processed until we receive a Megan’s Law form for all members providing coverage on the Fairgrounds.

While Media Credentials are transferable within a station/publication, each individual planning to use the Media Credential must also provide the proper form of ID. Please have photo copies of all valid IDs, there will be a section below for uploading.
