Save | Now in its third year, the Miss Alpena County Fair Queen Pageant keeps growing in popularity and participation.
"It's a good experience for the girls who participate," said Sherry Minton, co-chair of the contest along with Emily Eagling.
When the pageant first started in 2007, only four girls entered the competition. That number has since doubled, with eight candidates lined up to participate in the event that takes place Aug. 2 at 2 p.m. on the Alpena County Fairgrounds stage.
The eight girls, ranging in age from 13 to 18, will be evaluated by a panel of four judges on evening gown, talent, judge's interview, and their poise and appearance while answering an on-stage question.
Participating in at least one worthwhile organization in the community such as FFA, 4-H or an activity related to the fair also is a requirement of the pageant.
A 2009 Miss Alpena County Fair queen, first runner-up, Miss Congeniality, evening wear winner and talent winner will be selected. The new queen and her court will then reign over the remainder of the fair, Aug. 2-8.
Throughout the coming year, they also will participate in local parades and activities.
