LSNews.org plans Fair Queen coverage

With the Lampeter Fair less than two months away, the anticipation for the annual Fair Queen contest is building. This year, the contest will be held on Wednesday, September 23 at 7:30 PM in the horse ring after a parade from the high school to the fairgrounds that begins at 7:00. Last year's iteration of the contest featured 16 candidates, each representing a different club from the high school. However, this year only seven clubs nominated candidates; ostensibly, less interest existed among eligible students in the school, as many clubs could not find anyone interested in participating to nominate.

Sarah Sambrick, the Varsity Club's nominee, won in 2014, and Hunter Bradley, the Future Nurses Club's nominee, was the runner-up. The club that nominates the winner receives $50, while the club that nominates the runner-up receives $35. More significantly, the Fair Queen goes on to represent the West Lampeter Community Fair during the State Fair Convention in January.

Next Friday, LSNews.org will publish the first of seven candidate profiles, and will publish one each Friday leading up to the fair. See the table below for a full list of candidates, and dates of profile publication, which are subject to change.

Late Update: In light of the addition of four new Fair Queen candidates, beginning in September, we will publish an article on Tuesday in addition to Friday. The new candidates are: Rachel Shortes (representing Mini-Thon), Hailey Rohrer (Do Something), Kristin Strubel (Interact), and Chelsea Hancock (Ski and Snowboard).
