Deadline for 2014 Fair Queen contestants nears

The deadline for 2014 fair queen contestants is only one week away at 4 p.m. May 2.

A little more than a month later, the 55th Rush County Fair Queen will be crowned shortly after 7 p.m. June 7 in the Laughlin Center for the Performing Arts at RCHS.

Leading up to the crowning of the 2014 Rush County Fair Queen, a number of events will be held including workshops and the annual car wash.

Rush County Fair Queen Pageant Committee Chairperson Karen Macy said earlier this week that applications are still being accepted for this year’s event.

During the annual Rush County Fair, the queen and her court will preside over a variety of events as well as represent Rush County during the Indiana State Fair Queen Pageant.

“It’s hard to believe it is time to prepare for the 55th annual Rush County Fair Queen Pageant,” Macy said.

She continued by saying that there are a few changes this year regarding Indiana State Fair queen contestants. Contestants must be at least 17-years-of age and turn 18 no later than 18 by June 1 of this year.

The orientation for contestants and their mothers will be held beginning at 6 p.m. May 7. Other important dates for 2014 fair queen contestants are workshops leading up to the event that will be held May12, 13, 19 and 20 at the Root Building.

“For those girls who were lucky enough to be crowned Miss Rush County, they are now a part of an elite group of women. They not only represent the county at our local level, but at the state fair as well. They are a role model for younger children of our future,” Macy said.

Some of the duties of the fair queen and her court include attending all 4-H events, such as the horse show, dog show, cattle, swine, sheep, rabbits and goats during fair week. They will also attend the baby show and all track events.
