Contestants must also be willing to participate in fundraising events for charity and comfortable around livestock. The contest consists of an essay that’s 300 words or less on what the fair means to the community, a speech on why to attend the fair and a personal interview.
“The Fair Queen program is more than just fair week. It provides young ladies with an opportunity to enhance their speaking, writing and interview skills, to meet public officials and learn about agriculture,” said Morgan.
“The program encourages community involvement by raising funds for charity, speaking engagements at area organizations and appearances at area events.”
