There’s something new with the Humboldt County Fair Queen competition this year.
In addition to the Humboldt County Fair Queen contest, younger contestants will get a chance to experience what it’s all about.
Girls ages 7-11 can run for Junior Miss, and girls ages 12-15 can run for Princess. In addition there still is the Little Miss and Little Mister contest for boys and girls ages 4-6.
“We hope to get more girls involved and give them a glimpse of what it’s like to run for Fair Queen, and to be able to interact with the Fair Queen candidates,” Queen coordinator Amber Harrison said.
The Junior Miss and Princess candidates will meet with judges and answer some questions on Friday morning, July 20, at the Humboldt County Extension Office. This is also the time for the 2018 Humboldt County Fair Queen Contest.
The Humboldt County Fair Queen competition is open to any girl age 16-21 who resides in Humboldt County. The Fair Queen will receive a $1,000 scholarship sponsored by Humboldt Mutual Insurance Association, plus the queen will receive $250 for State Fair Queen Contest expenses, and additional gifts will be given to runner-up and Miss Congeniality. The 2018 Humboldt County Fair Queen will represent Humboldt County at the Iowa State Fair Aug. 7-11.
The deadline for entering is June 22. Entry forms are for the Queen, Princess and Junior Miss competitions and can be found in this week's Reminder, or online at or by contacting Amber Harrison at (515) 473-8035 or by email at
