ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Voters have chosen the theme for this year's New York State Fair: "Sharing the Bounty and Pride of NY."

The slogan was the winner among 10 culled by state officials from 500 entries and posted on the fair's Facebook page for a popular vote. The result was announced Tuesday.

The guidelines for the contest said suggestions should touch on the state's economic, cultural and institutional strengths. Past themes have included "Discover America in the Heart of NY" and "It Just Keeps Growing and Growing."
