Queen’s Duties, Responsibilities & Expectations
2012 Miss Edgar County Fair Queen’s Duties, Responsibilities & Expectations:
The newly crowned Queen will serve as the official hostess for the Edgar County Fair July 21-28, 2012.
The Queen will represent the Edgar County Fair at, but not limited to, the following functions;
County Fair Day at the Illinois State Fair on Friday, August 10, 2012 (date set by State Fair Officials).
Central Zone Meeting on the last Sunday in October (date set by the IAAF Board).
Miss Illinois County Fair Queen Pageant as part of the Illinois Association of Agricultural Fairs (IAAF) Convention in January 2013 (date set by the IAAF)
Surrounding County Fair Queen Pageants
Area parades – Paris Honeybee Festival (fourth weekend in September), Chrisman Days (September), Brocton Springfest (first weekend in June), Edgar County Shrine (second weekend in June), Kansas Festival, and any other parades outside of Edgar County by invitation
The Queen will not partake of alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs and will refrain from smoking while representing the Edgar County Fair, officially or unofficially, at any time.
The Queen is expected to conduct herself appropriately at all times, regardless of whether she is officially representing Edgar County Fair or not. If at any time during her reign she is charged with, or convicted of, a felony crime, she will be required to relinquish her crown immediately and the title may be offered to the first runner-up. If the first runner-up chooses to decline the position the title may then be offered to the second-runner up.
The Queen will be chaperoned by the Pageant Director or someone approved by the director at any time she officially represents the Edgar County Fair.
The Queen will abstain from public displays of affection towards her boyfriend during the week of the Fair or at any function.
The Queen will not enter any other judged pageant during her reign (with the exception of the Miss Illinois County Fair Queen Pageant).
All extra spending cash desired by the Queen during her reign is the responsibility of the Queen.
Thank you notes are mandatory and to be written and mailed during the month of August (and when deemed necessary) to the sponsors of the Pageant, Fair family and friends. The generosity of our Fair family and friends is outstanding and the Queen should always be gracious with a note of thanks.
The Queen’s personal appearances must be approved in advance by the Pageant Director along with any other photographic sessions or pictures taken or photos released with the Queen wearing her crown and/or sash officially representing the Edgar County Fair. Director will approve the Queen’s wardrobe.
The Queen shall not make any alterations to her appearance (i.e. piercing, tattoos, etc.) until the end of her reign as Miss Edgar County Fair.
Financial responsibilities of the Queen include, but aren’t limited to;
Photos for State Pageant
Wardrobe for State Pageant (gown, interview suit, swimsuit, & taupe heels)
Photos for the Fair Book (with Little Miss)
Plaques for the Fair Board (with Little Miss) for the fair office
The manner in which the newly selected queen conducts herself should always be that of respect for herself, the Edgar County Fair, and its Fair Board, at all times during her reign. If at any time the Edgar County Fair Board and Pageant Director feel that any of the said rules or duties have been broken it is at their discretion to release the reigning queen of her title. At that time it is required to immediately return all prizes to the pageant director.
