Pre-Pageant photos

It has taken me days to go through the AMAZING photos taken by Dawn Wallace of The Photography Barn.  It was almost impossible to narrow them down to a few to share with you here at the Queen Blog. 

I tried my best, but I'm going to have to break down the posts to Pre-Pageant, Pageant, and Post Pageant pictures.  Prior to the pageant we had the pleasure of Dawn joining us during judging day.  Many candidates chose to get some professional photos done by Dawn.  Here are a few of the photos taken by the wonderful Mrs. Wallace before the pageant...

Parade and 1st day of Queen duties!

Today the ladies started off by attending and passing our ribbons at the rabbit show bright and early.

Then we had a lunch meeting to get the schedule ready for the rest of the week and everyone dressed and ready for the parade.

Following the parade some ladies has to attend to work duties for Jr. Leaders while the others took a small break for the nights festivities.

For the evening they spent time at the Ninestar Booth in the Commercial Building, time at the llama costume show, fashion revue, and later a few were introduced at the tractor pull.

Below are a few photos from today's events!

2012 Judging Complete!

The 2012 Hancock County 4-H Fair Queen was decided yesterday by three wonderful judges.....but we must all wait until Saturday, June 23rd at 7:00 p.m. to find out who they decided should represent Hancock County at the Indiana State Fair. 

Our judging was held at Brandywine Community Church and the events began at 9:30 a.m.  By 10:00 a.m. the interviews were ready to begin.  Each lady had 3-4 minutes to impress the judges during their interview.  Once the interviews were over they modeled their professional wear on the stage.  Then, the ladies modeled their formal wear.  After judging was complete we had a little fun thanks to our wonderful photographer (Dawn Wallace with The Photography Barn) and Smith Implements. 

See some photos below from judging day!
