[July 25, 2011]  Seven lovely young women will be vying for the title of 2011 Miss Logan County Fair this year.

For those who have signed up to vie for the crown, there has been a lot going on over the last couple of weeks.

InsuranceLed by co-directors Amy Cherry and Deanne Mott, the young ladies have attended practices with the current fair queen, Bethany Rea, as well as informative workshops that will prepare them not only for the competition, but also for the year ahead of them should they take the crown.

The queen competition will be on Aug. 2 at 7:30 p.m. in front of the grandstand on the county fairgrounds.

During that time, the contestants will present themselves in the one-piece swimsuit competition, the evening gown event and will be asked a question they must answer without any forewarning as to what the question might be.

Prior to the evening event, contestants will also undergo personal interviews with the judges. The ladies will appear one at a time in front of the judges that afternoon. They are expected to dress in business attire and will be judged on their ability to present themselves in a professional manner to the judges.

At the end of the competition, the lady who is crowned queen will be expected to represent the county in a variety of ways. She will make numerous appearances and will pass out ribbons and trophies at the wide variety of judging events at the fair. She will be included in other events around Logan County throughout the year and will represent Logan County in a January competition for Miss Illinois County Fair.
