The Fort Bend County Fair is now accepting entries for contestants for the Fair Queen Scholarship Contest.
The number of contestants is limited to the first 20 entries, and the registration deadline is June 14, 2021.
A mandatory orientation meeting will be held on Sunday, July 11, at 2:30 p.m. at the Fairgrounds in Building B.
“We look forward to having girls from different parts of the county representing different schools and organizations to run for Fair Queen,” said Jennifer Williams, Fort Bend County Fair co-director in charge of the Queen Scholarship Contest. “The experience of being a candidate is rewarding. We see how each young lady transforms and becomes more self-confident, they sharpen their communication skills, and overall make long-lasting relationships with each other throughout the competition.”
The candidate that is crowned queen will serve as an ambassador throughout the fair’s 10-day run. She will attend receptions, livestock shows, and auctions as part of her duties. Throughout the year, the Fair Queen will represent the Fort Bend County Fair at community events, luncheons, holiday gatherings, and other fair activities.
The Fort Bend County Fair Queen Scholarship Contest is for females between the ages of 15 and 19 who are residents of Fort Bend County. The competition is based on a personal interview, an essay, a networking event, community service, and participation.
Winners receive scholarships and prizes for their efforts, as well as the opportunity to serve as a community ambassador for the Fort Bend County Fair for the coming year.
The 2021 Fort Bend County Fair Queen will be crowned on Friday, Sept.24. Plans are underway for the fair days that will run from Sept. 24 to Oct. 3.
