About Miss McHenry County

The McHenry County Fair Queen Pageant has been a tradition at the McHenry County fair for over 60 years. The pageant provides scholarships to the Miss McHenry County titleholder to help them pursue their educational dreams.  This year we are excited to announce a new Princess Program as well as two new titles, Jr. and Teen Miss McHenry County.  Girls ages 9 – 16 years of age may compete for these two new titles.   Young women, ages 16 – 21, may compete for the title of Miss McHenry County.
The McHenry County Fair Princess Program is a non-competitive program.  This program is designed to provide young girls ages 5 – 9 years old an opportunity to grow in confidence and have a good time.   Each Princess will be crowned on stage.
The Jr and Teen divisions will compete in the areas of Interview, Speech, Formal Wear and On-Stage Question.  Miss McHenry County contestants will competed in areas of Interview, Speech, Formal Wear, Swimsuit and On-Stage Question.  All applications provide greater details for each of these titles and programs.
