Young ladies between the ages of 16 and 21 are needed to participate in the Miss Effingham County Fair Queen Pageant to be held Tuesday, August 7.

Contestants will be judged on their personal interview, physical fitness in a swimsuit, and poise in an evening gown.  No entry fee or talent portion of competition is required.

The winner will receive a cash scholarship, plus numerous prizes, and an all-expense-paid weekend to compete for the title of Miss Illinois County Fair Queen in January.
