Miss McHenry County

Miss McHenry County

The Miss McHenry County Fair Pageant has been a tradition at the McHenry County Fair for over 60 years. Our pageant provides a scholarship to the new Miss Queen helping her to pursue her educational hopes and dreams. In 2016, the pageant expanded its opportunities becoming Miss McHenry County Fair Pageants, including a Jr. Teen (Ages 9-13) and Teen (Ages 13-17) as well as a Noncompete Princess Mentoring Program (Ages 5-9).  The Miss Contestants must be ages 17 (senior) - 21 years of age prior to the State Pageant the following January.

The McHenry County Fair Princess Mentoring Program is a non-compete 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 and have a ton of fun!

The Jr and Teen contestants will compete in the areas of Interview, Speech, Formal Wear and On-Stage Question. Miss McHenry County contestants will compete in the areas of Interview, Sportswear, Speech, Formal Wear and On-Stage Question. Please review the Official Pageant Rules for more details.
