Friday is Deadline for Waukesha's Fairest of the Fair
2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the Waukesha County Fairest of the Fair competition. The Fairest of the Fair is selected on the basis of personality, communication skills, school and community activities, professional appearance, and knowledge of and experience with the Fair. The individual chosen will serve as the official host and spokesperson for the Waukesha County Fair with duties beginning immediately after being crowned. Responsibilities include welcoming the public, interviews with the media, announcing special events, judging and participating in contests, and awarding ribbons. Throughout the year, the Fairest will represent the Fair at speaking engagements and parades and will also represent Waukesha County at the Wisconsin State Fairest of the Fairs competition at the annual Wisconsin Association of Fairs convention.
Fairest of the Fair applications are due by July 1 for the 50th anniversary of the contest. The 2016 Fairest will be crowned on opening night of the Waukesha County Fair, July 20 in the Leinie Lodge. Fairest applicants can be submitted to the Fair via a form on the website.
