The annual Junior Fair Queen Contest is a highlight of the Adams County Fair each July. This year’s queen will have the honor of being the 50th Fair queen in the fair’s history. The 2016 Queen will be crowned on Sunday during the Fair’s opening ceremonies under the watchful eyes of the past Fair queens. All former queens have been invited to participate in this year’s parade and will be on stage for the coronation of the 50th Adams County Fair Queen.

Any female age 16-18 years of age as of Jan. 1 who is an active member of one or more of the county’s Junior Fair organizations, including 4-H, FFA, FCCLA, Youth Grange, and Scouts, may apply to compete for queen and her court. Completed applications are due to OSU Extension Adams County, 215 N Cross St, Room 104, West Union, on or before 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 1.

Interviews to select five finalists will be conducted on Friday, June 24. The finalists will participate in the annual Fair parade through West Union on Sunday, July 10, and they’ll be interviewed on stage during the Fair’s opening ceremonies later that afternoon. Festivities will conclude with the coronation of the queen and her court by the 2015 Queen, Karlie Harper.

Following the coronation, the Queen and her court will reign at many Junior Fair events throughout the Fair, including various animal shows and the annual Small Animal and Baked Goods sale on Friday evening of fair week and the Livestock Sale on Saturday.
