19 to seek 4-H Fair Queen title

On July 13, 19 young women will vie for the title of the 61st Wabash County 4-H Fair queen.

The contest will be in the Ford Theatre of the Honeywell Center with doors opening at 6:15 p.m. and the pageant beginning at 7 p.m. The pageant will be live streamed on the Wabash County Fair Queen Facebook Page.

The Wabash County 4-H Fair Queen Pageant is presented with support from The Honeywell Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the enhancement of artist, social, recreational, and cultural opportunities for the people of Wabash County and the State of Indiana.

The contestants will be judged on the basis of the ability to converse, speaking ability, poise, personality and ability to be an ambassador for the Wabash County Fair. The judging is divided into three phases of competition which include a personal interview, professional wear, overall impressions and formal wear.  The interview and professional wear judging are closed to the public. The public pageant will conclude the judging with the formal wear modeling as well as the final phase of the competition, the “onstage word,” in which each contestant will draw a piece of paper with a word printed on it and answer with their personal definition of it. At the end of the event, Miss Wabash 2022 will be crowned, along with her court of three runners up, and Miss Congeniality.

Miss Wabash County 2022 will serve as the official host of the Wabash County Fair, July 16-23. 

The queen will receive a scholarship which is provided and supported by the past Wabash County Fair Queens.  Members of the queen’s court will receive scholarships provided by the Wabash County Extension Homemakers, Beacon Credit Union and the Wabash County Fair Board.
