’22 Queen & King Application

Posted: January 21, 2022

Welcome to another exciting year of the Blake’s Prairie Jr. Fair. We will be sponsoring a king and queen contest to be held in conjunction with the 2022 Blake’s Prairie Fair (July 22-24). We encourage Clubs and Organizations to sponsor BOTH a king and a queen candidate, however you are not required to have both a king candidate and a queen candidate.  The winners will be crowned in a royalty ceremony Friday evening and will reign over the remainder of the fair.  The royalty will receive the appropriate royalty items and a cash award.  All other candidates will receive a gift.

The winners will be decided by a tally of votes received before the fair.  Each person who purchases a fair button before the fair will be entitled to one vote for a king and one vote for a queen.  The buttons and ballots must be turned into us by 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 21st.  Your club or organization will also be given a 5% commission on the amount of buttons sold.  If at any time you need more buttons or ballots, please contact Sara Adrian or Jessica Muller. Please designate a person responsible for your clubs buttons, ballots and money. All need to be turned in by Thursday late afternoon, unused buttons must be turned in at this time also. We will be verifying money turned in to the amount of buttons sold.
