The Monroe County 4-H and FFA Fair is set to kick off on Thursday, July 25 with the crowning of the fair King and Queen.
On Sunday, July 28, at 4:30 p.m. in the Exhibit Building the Little Prince and Princess Fair Contest will take place. The contest is for boys and girls ages, three, four and five.
Parents of the contestant must have lived in the state of Iowa for six months prior to the contest date. Each contestant will be judged on personality, natural appearance and beauty. Five year olds will be judged on talent.
Each contestant may be dressed as desired, but no make-up will be allowed. Pageant dresses are allowed and Prince contestants may wear suits, casual wear or dress pants.
Three and four-year-olds will be accompanied on stage by one adult. Five year olds will walk to the stage unaccompanied by an adult. Talent must conform to the fair facilities and each contestant is responsible for supplying their own props.
Registration forms can be found on Page 2 of Tuesday's newspaper, at the newspaper office or at the Monroe County Extension Office. The entry forms should be delivered to the Extension Office at 219 B Ave. West in Albia.
