The reign of Phoebe Davis will come to end this week as a new young woman will be crowned Hamilton County 4-H Fair Queen. This year’s pageant will be held at 7 p.m. Friday at the Hamilton County 4‐H Grounds, 2003 Pleasant St., Noblesville.
Five of the 23 contestants reside in Noblesville. Area 4-H’ers include Kendall Gatewood, daughter of Bruce and Chelse Gatewood; Michelle Hance, daughter of Joseph and Patricia Hance; Kara Moody, daughter of Keith and Beth Moody; Nicole Turner, daughter of Ted and Cindy Turner; and Elizabeth Vincent, daughter of Rick and Susan Vincent.
Contestants will be judged on the basis of personality, poise, presence and beauty. This judging is divided into three categories – professional wear, formalwear and a four minute interview with the judges. To be eligible, a contestant must be between the ages of 16 to 19 by Aug. 19 and must be an active 4‐H member in Hamilton County this year. Previous winners cannot compete again.
The new queen and her court will make appearances during this year’s Hamilton County 4‐H Fair (July 19-24) as well as represent Hamilton County in the 2012 Indiana State Fair Queen Pageant.
