The Fonda Fair recently hosted its 30th Miss Fonda Fair pageant on opening night to choose ambassadors of the fair for the week and year. Contestants first compete in a private interview with the judges. That evening they return to the stage for two separate pageants. First, the two younger categories compete in Sunday’s Best beauty and an on-stage speech, the scores are tabulated and the Princesses are crowned. Then the two older categories return and do the same- evening gown and on-stage speech. These speeches tell the judges about the contestants and how they plan on improving the community if they win. It is very similar to a verbal platform statement.
Some of the judges were even former queens- Miss Fonda Fair 1985 and Miss Fonda Fair 2005!
