MOUNT VERNON — Haley Ehret, Little Miss Knox County Fair 2011, opened the Little Miss contest saying, “Welcome to the Knox County Fair,” and then a parade of 12 young Knox County girls competed for the 2012 title. The tiara and title went to Hadley Ramirez-George.

Little Miss Knox County Fair 2012 won $100. First runner-up Jacklyn Bolton won $75, and runner-ups Reagan Ward and Laney Wenger won $50 and $25, respectively.

Contestants also included Mackenzie Addair, Madeline Compton, Wryn Miller, Nevaeh Owens, Sara Bennett, Cara Garcia, Cordi Richert and Adrianna Thomas.

Little Miss Knox County contenders must be 7 years old by July 1, and wear long dresses in either red, white or blue to the contest where they are interviewed by judges chosen by the fair board. They are also judged on the questions they respond to in front of the audience and on their poise.

Master of ceremonies Julie Chester noted that this was the 25th year for the contest and she has been involved every year. She spoke with the girls for approximately three minutes each, asking them questions about their lives.

Pets were a popular theme and so were siblings. By the time the last contestant had said she had a brother or sister who was “annoying,” it was clear that sibling rivalry was a popular concern. As the judges deliberated, 2012 Fair King Gavin Rundell encouraged the girls saying, “Well, I was one who had an annoying sister and as you get older, they’re not so annoying.” Fair Queen Carlie Hashman added, “Whoever wins, have fun and a great week at the fair.”
