The annual Adams County Junior Fair Queen Contest is a highlight of the Adams County Fair each year. In 2019, we will bring back the Adams County Junior Fair King portion of the contest as well. The Queen, King and their courts will be crowned on Sunday, July 7 during the Fair’s opening ceremony in front of the Grandstand at approximately 5:00 p.m.
Youth age 16-18 years of age as of January 1 who active members of one or more of the county’s Junior Fair organizations, including 4-H, FFA, FCCLA, SkillsUSA, and Scouts, may apply to compete for royalty court. Completed applications are due to OSU Extension Adams County, 215 N Cross St, Room 104, West Union, on or before 4:00 p.m. on Monday, June 3rd due to June 1st falling on a Saturday.
Interviews to select five finalists for both King and Queen will be conducted on Friday, June 28, at the West Union Elementary School. The finalists will participate in the annual Fair parade through West Union on Sunday, July 7, and they’ll be interviewed on stage during the Fair’s opening ceremonies later that afternoon. Festivities will conclude with the coronation of the king, queen and their court by the 2018 Fair Queen, Carlie Cluxton.
Following the coronation, the Queen, King and their 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.
