  • The contestant must be unmarried and must never have been married.

  • Each contestant must be an Indiana and Johnson County Resident, a U.S. citizen, and represent her home county (Johnson) in this contest.  One of her parents or legal guardians must also be an Indiana resident. The only exception: she may reside in an adjoining Indiana County if the majority of her activities are in Johnson County. Please contact the Contest Director if you have any questions about this residency requirement.

  • Contestants cannot have had a child or be knowingly pregnant at the time of the county fair or the State Fair Queen Pageant. If Miss Johnson County Fair 2023 or a member of queens’ court becomes pregnant anytime during her reign, she will be required to relinquish her title.

  • If during your reign, you have violated or broken laws such as: underage drinking, alcohol/drug use, etc., disciplinary actions will be taken, which may include the relinquishment of your title.

  • Eligibility is not limited to 4-H membership.

  • Any contestant who has competed in a State Fair Queen Pageant cannot compete again.

  • Previous “Miss Johnson County” title holders are not eligible to compete again.

  • The winner of the County contest will be crowned “Miss Johnson County” 2023 and must be prepared to spend the remaining period of the Johnson County Fair, July 16 through 22 as hostess for the fair. Members of the Queen’s Court must also be prepared to serve as hostesses during the fair.

  •  The contestants who are selected as Miss Johnson County and Court will be required to be in Crown and Sash attire at all public events and appearances.  Crown and Sash attire includes: formal dress, sundresses, business professional, or business casual, unless otherwise approved by the Contest Director.  

  • The winning contestant will be entered as “Miss Johnson County” in the Indiana State Fair Contest and will be required to stay in their assigned room/dorm at the Indiana State Fairgrounds through the pageant in early January 2024 (tentative dates are January 5,6 and 7). As Miss Johnson County, you will also be required to attend  “County Fair Queens’ Day” at the Indiana State Fair in mid-August (date TBA).

  • PLEASE NOTE:  If you are selected as queen or court member please be aware that this experience may require you to sacrifice some of your regular fair experiences. All winners are expected to be available for all assigned fair duties.  We will do our best to make accommodations so that your 4-H showing obligations can be met.

  • It is also expected that the reigning Queen and her court participate in other events and appearances, including but not limited to, the Greenwood Freedom Festival parade, Downtown Franklin Christmas Parade and Holiday Lighting, and pre-fair events held in June and July of the following year. There will be other opportunities during the year for volunteer or community service events. These events will not be mandatory but you are encouraged to attend if your schedules allow. If you are invited to appear at other events, please make the program Director aware and follow the Official Crown, Sash and Apparel guidelines above.

  •  Per State Fair Queen Contest guidelines, tattoos are not prohibited.  However, scoring   is up to the judges’ discretion.  Tattoos may be covered if this is a concern to you.  Please discuss this with the contest director if you have any questions.
