The Miss Clark County Queen Pageant is now accepting applications! Any Clark County young person that will be 18 by January 5, 2018 and will not have reached their 22nd birthday on or before June 1, 2018 may participate. They must be an active member of at least one worthwhile organization in the community and must be sponsored by a Clark County business and/or organization.
The Miss Clark County Queen will be the official host of the Clark County 4-H Fair, July 14-22. The Queen will also represent Clark County in the 2018 Indiana State Fair Queen Pageant which will be held in Indianapolis January 5-7, 2018.
Although the purpose of the Clark County Queen Pageant itself is to select the next Queen, the main objective behind the event is to choose the best Clark County representative possible while educating youth. The Miss Clark County Queen is not just a “symbol” of the fair, and they have worked to move away from the “beauty pageant” image. Contestants are not judged in swim suits or talent; judging categories are interview, prepared speech, professional wear, and formal wear.
Miss Clark County is a valuable spokesperson that should be able to speak to and converse with all types of visitors and guests of the county fair including 4-Hers, exhibitors, individuals from both rural and urban communities, sponsor representatives, etc.
This year, the public pageant will be June 17 at 7 p.m. in the Charlestown High School Auditorium.
The application deadline is Friday, May 12.
