The Madison County Fair Association Queen Pageant is pleased to announce their 2nd Annual Miss Merry Christmas Pageant and Toy Drive to benefit “Toys for Tots”, December 16, 2012 at Highland Hope United Methodist Church in Highland, IL at 2:00 p.m. hosted by our 2012 Miss Madison County Emily Ahlers and our 2012 Junior Miss Madison County Avery Wasser.
The Miss Merry Christmas Pageant is an official fundraiser to allow our current MissMadisonCounty, Emily Ahlers attend and participate in the Miss Illinois State Pageant and to pay for the 2013 County Fair pageant. We combine this fundraiser with a community service event to collect toys to benefit “Toys for Tots.”
“In 2010, we had over 30 contestants and raised over 300 toys” according to the Miss Madison County Queen Pageant Director, Cheyenne Perry. The 2010 titleholders were invited to the Madison County Toys for Tots distribution event and were able to meet several of the children that the toys benefited last year.
This is a pageant for all ages ranging from 0-13 years of age. No pageant experience is required! The different age categories are Baby Miss ages 0-1, Tiny Miss ages 2-4, Little Miss ages 5-7, Pre-Teen Miss ages 7-9, and Junior Miss ages 10-13. Ages are determined by the contestant’s age on December 1, 2012. The deadline to enter is December 1, 2012. Late entries will be accepted on a limited basis.
The Baby Miss and Tiny Miss categories are based on Personality, Appearance (Outfit), General Beauty, and Photogenic Ability. The Little Miss, Pre-Teen Miss, and Junior Miss categories are based on Personality, Appearance (Outfit), On Stage Question/Intro, Poise and Presentation, and Photogenic Ability.
There is also a Miss Community Service award that will be given to the contestant that collects the most toys for the “Toys for Tots” organization!
All contestants in the state of Illinois ages 0-13 are eligible! This pageant is open to all Illinois residents. Entry fees are $30 per contestant, there is a discounted fee of $25 each for contestant that brings a toy for “Toys for Tots.” Entry fee into the pageant is $5. Each contestant will receive a tiara.
Cheyenne Perry, the Miss Merry Christmas Pageant Coordinator explained why this event was created, “This pageant is to bring awareness to the community that one, our queen does not just wear a crown during fair week, goes to state and that's it. Our Queen & Junior Miss want to do community service throughout their year and still bring awareness to our community about our fair and our pageant!”
