Little Miss, Mister applications available


The 2017 Switzerland County Little Miss and Mister Contest will be held on Monday, July 10th, at 6 p.m. in the Community Building, located at the main entrance of the Switzerland County 4-H Fairgrounds.

Contestants must be five years of age on July 10th, and cannot be eight years of age on July 10th. Each contestant will wear theme wear. This year’s theme is “Career Wear,” where the contestants are asked to wear an outfit that resembles what they want to be “when they grow up.” No make-up will be tolerated – keep it simple, no “Toddlers & Tiaras;” the judges just want to see the child’s true beauty and self. The contest itself will take place at 6 p.m., however the interview portion will begin at 5 p.m. Please keep in mind that organizers want this to be a fun event for all – parents will not be allowed beyond a certain point after 5 p.m. on contest night. The children will have activities to keep them busy during the interview process.

There will be a brief meeting and practice on Sunday, July 9th, at 5 p.m. in the Community Building for all contestants. Applications may be picked up in the Extension Office. Applications must be submitted with $15 entry fee and a current photo (no bigger than a 5×7, and will be returned after the contest) to the Extension Office no later than 4 p.m. on Monday, July 3rd.
