Show off your pride in your home state! The state basket exchange was started back at NDOG 2007. If you would like to participate, build a basket or other container with items that represent your home state. Please try to keep your value in the $30 range so that everyone goes home with a basket of approximately the same value. Please turn in your basket when you register, and on Saturday afternoon pick up a basket from another state. Possible items to include are: food items that are manufactured in your state, thoughtful items that are handmade by you or those you know, mugs or key chains with your state info on them, etc. We always include our name and address on a card inside as well, so the recipient knows who built the basket. Below are some of the state baskets exchanged at NDOG 2019.
