Six young ladies have registered to run for the 2016 Fort Bend County Fair Queen.
Alyssa Flowers, Kennedy Paige Johnson, Megan Lepovitz, Katie Koerth, Samantha Sebesta, and Savannah Fernandez will be vying for the queen’s crown, leather sash and their place in fair history. The young lady who is declared the winner will participate as an ambassador throughout the fair’s run from Sept. 23 to Oct. 2 and through the following year’s events. The contest awards several different scholarships to the queen and her court including a $2,000 marketing award scholarship.
On July 17 a meeting was held at the Safari Texas Ranch where the young ladies, their parents, board members and committee members gathered for tea and an explanation of contest rules.
The 2015 Fort Bend County Queen, Hannah Eicke, and several past fair queens attended to help present the rules and information of the contest.
The candidates attend schools from all over the county, including Ridge Point High School, Foster High School, and Lamar High School.
The Fort Bend County Fair Queen Scholarship Contest is based on ticket sales, a judged interview, style show performance and participation.
