FAIR QUEEN Application

2024 St Lucie County Fair Queen Application

All contestants must be currently enrolled in a
St. Lucie County School and in 9th, 10th or 11th grade.

This contest is NOT a beauty pageant. We are looking for a natural born female with good moral character, an outgoing personality, and who is involved in our community, along with an agricultural background.

The Fair Queen will attend several functions during the Fair through all ten days and several events throughout their reigning year. The Court will accompany her when she deems necessary.

The Fair Queen’s main priority is to support the St. Lucie County Youth Livestock Program. Some of her duties require her to be photographed with our exhibitors during our livestock award ceremonies and livestock sale pictures. This includes, but not limited to pigs, steers, and goats.

The Fair Queen and Court need to attend a minimum of 6 events during the reigning year. If you have several other commitments, please take this into consideration before applying.

The Fair Queen Committee will communicate a lot via text. Please understand your responses are VERY important.

The Fair Queen and Court are required to follow the St. Lucie County Youth Livestock’s dress code while attending the St. Lucie County Fair and other Fair related events unless otherwise stated. During the 10 day fair, the Queen & Court are required to wear button down shirts or blouses with nice, no ripped jeans, unless otherwise discussed.

Carefully review the application regulations and deadlines. We are looking for individuals that would be proud to represent this county. We look forward to meeting all applicants.

Contest attire is:

Long jeans (no holes), long sleeve button down shirt, belt, and closed toe boot style shoes.

Contestants may wear cowboy hats but be aware if you win you may need to take it off to put your crown on.

  • Double check grammar and spelling on completed application.
  • List everything about you that is applicable.
  • Your minimum requirement can be as simple as “that you attend the fair.”
  • The more the information you include the better. This will make the judges feel as if they know who you are as person before the contest.
  • Remember, this is not a beauty contest. We tell the judges that we are looking for young girls that have good moral character, personality, community involvement and a agricultural background. The more they know about you as a person the better.

You do not need to have any involvement in the fair to be a contestant. Your involvement can be as simple as you attend the fair. The application will be judged as part of this contest. It comes out to be 20% of the preliminary score. This will be the judge’s first impression of you. Some judges take the application process very seriously. We advise you to put together a well thought out and neat/professional application. Be very creative but only include required information. Thank you.
