Dearborn County Fair
Mike Perleberg-Eagle 99.3
That’s what judges will decide Wednesday evening at the Dearborn County 4-H and Community Fair.
More than 100 youngsters usually turn out for the contest each year.
Registration for the contest begins at 5:00 p.m. with the judging getting underway at 6:30. Parents won’t have to pay a fee this year to enter their child. The Dearborn County Hospital Birthing Center is covering the cost for them.
The babies will be divided into eight groups based on age and sex then judged on their appearance, personality, and attentiveness. The boy and girl grand champions will each receive a savings bond.
Earlier this week, fair royalty was crowned. Micaela Johnson, of St. Leon, was named the 4-H Queen. No candidates entered the king contest.
4-H Princess honors went to Robyn Shumate. The Prince was Elijah Love.
2010 Miss Dearborn County Queen was awarded to Amanda Herth.
Dale and Verneda Wendleman, owners of Wendleman’s Sound, were named Citizens of the Year.
