Barron County Fair Seeks 2018 Fairest of the Fair

 

Would you like the chance to represent the Barron County Fair, have fun, meet new people, polish your interviewing and speaking skills and gain a lasting experience?  The Barron County “Fairest of the Fair” Contest is looking for contestants 18 years of age and older (as of January 1, 2019).  The contest is open to contestants who have been a resident of the state of Wisconsin for at least one year.  Contestants must reside in Barron County or an adjoining county, if the majority of their fair and/or school activities are in Barron County.  Contestants are eligible to run for a maximum of two years.

The Fairest of the Fair is chosen by a panel of impartial judges based upon: personality, attitude, maturity, professionalism, speaking ability, poise, appearance, involvement in school, community and fair activities and overall impression.

Prior to the fair, contestants will make a radio ad, participate in individual and group interviews and attend a luncheon where they will give a self introduction and their radio ad.  The crowning of the new “Fairest” will take place at the Barron County Fair on Friday, July 20th.  The new “Fairest” will receive a $1,000.00 scholarship and represent the county at the the State Fairest of the Fair competition in January 2019.  The Runner-up will receive $100.00 and all other participants will receive $25.
