The Miss Fulton County Pageant is one of the longest consecutive running pageants in the state, with an extensive legacy and a handful of strong titleholders making a splash at Miss New York each year. It is also one of the largest providers of scholarships in the local circuit. Miss Fulton County takes community pride very seriously, and remains closed to only residents, students, or full time employees of the county.

The Miss Fulton County titleholder needs to be active in the Fulton County area. She is expected to make frequent appearances, visit sponsors, and represent the region 100% of the time. They have a strong sense of community pride, and organizational respect. The winner of this pageant must be able to be the face of the county with dignity and respect, maintain an active appearance schedule, and make the county proud at Miss New York.

With only five contestants competing, the scores are not as important in the ranking, since all girls will make the final ballot. In the end, it is the contestant who strikes the most connection with the judges, and who they feel will be the best representative, that will go home with the crown. With Courtney’s experience she is an obvious thought for most predictions, but who knows?

Who will be the 44th Miss Fulton County?
