Little Miss Queen’s Farewell My name is Callie Rhae Wildermuth. I am the 7-year-old daughter of Brent and Shannon Wildermuth of Pinckneyville. In the fall, I will be a second grader at District #50 in Pinckneyville. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, playing dress up, riding my bike, jumping on the trampoline and playing with my little sister, Ryan. This year has been an amazing year for me as 2011 Little Miss Perry County. I was able to do some very exciting things; ride in parades, participate in events held at the Perry County Fair, and attend events sponsored by the Perry County Fair. I had the best time riding in the carriages at the fair. The parades were exciting too. Everyone lined up along the streets waving at me. Wow! Having Karen and Haley to guide me through the year was so much fun. They are my two big sisters now. I really liked the demo derby and the mud bog. Those trophies were taller than me! Thank you to everyone who made my year a wonderful experience; all of my family (especially Aunt Di for letting me borrow her red convertible), friends, the Fair board, and my sponsors for your support. From the bottom of my heart, thank you! I am so proud and honored to be the 2011 Little Miss Perry County. Good luck to all the 2012 contestants.

Love Your 2011 Little Miss Perry County Fair Queen,

Callie Rhea Wildermuth

Jr Miss Queen’s Farewell I am Haley Johnston and I am the 2011 Junior Miss Perry County Fair Queen. I have enjoyed every minute of my reign and can’t believe how fast this past year has flown by. It has been so much fun spending time with Miss Perry County Fair Karen Nehrkorn and Little Miss Perry County Fair Callie Wildermuth. We have had so many great times together. I have been proud to represent Perry County at many parades and events. I participated in the Du Quoin State Fair Parade, the Steeleville 4th of July Parade, the American Thresherman’s Parade and the Mardi Gras Parade. I also attended Queen’s Day at the Springfield State Fair and the Du Quoin State Fair. I was able to meet the Illinois State Fair Queen and many other county fair queens from throughout Illinois. I especially enjoyed eating lots of fair food like chicken-on-a-stick and funnel cakes! I attended several area pageants with the other Perry County queens and our pageant director Stacey Jones and enjoyed being introduced as visiting royalty. I even traveled to Springfield to watch the Miss Illinois State Fair Queen Pageant and cheer for Karen. She did a great job and I was so proud of her! I wish my time as queen didn’t have to come to an end; but at least I will always to able to look back on it with many great memories!

Your 2011 Junior Miss Perry County Fair Queen,

Haley Johnston

Miss Perry County Farewell I never knew that something so small would change my life so much as being the 2011 Miss Perry County Fair Queen has. I am Karen Nehrkorn the 18-year-old daughter of David and Beverly Nehrkorn of DuBois, Illinois. This past year I have had the most life changing and amazing experience that a person can have. Since I was young I dreamt of being Miss Perry County, but I never thought my dream would become reality. I have gone to the fair every year with my family and adored the tractor pulls and farm expos, but most of all the queen pageant. I ran for the 2011 Miss Perry County Fair Queen not only because it was my dream but also I wanted to represent Perry County from a different view that traces back to our roots, agriculture. I have now met so many members of our county and our state and have learned to appreciate not only the agriculture of Perry County but also all of the people in our county that work so hard each day. Of course none of my experiences could have been possible without my supportive family and friends. My family, especially my dad, has become so proud of me throughout my reign and they have all been right beside me every parade or outing that I have made. Without my family and friends and all of their love, I would not be the young woman I am. I also have to thank the Perry County Fair board and associate board for all of the love, support, advice and generosity that they have shown me throughout my year. I want to thank Bibs Ag Tiling Company for sponsoring me at the county fair last summer. John and Billy have been to every parade I have been in and they have always given me advice and support and I can’t thank them enough. To Haley and Callie: I didn’t know becoming Miss Perry County would also entitle me to adopting two of the most precious little sisters ever! I cannot wait to be there throughout your journeys in life and see you reach the defining moment when one day you too will be crowned and fill my shoes. I love you both so much and your families for welcoming into them with open arms. I have experienced so much this year from pageants to tractor pulls, derbies to parades, fairs to flag raisings and appearances all around our county, but most of all I will miss getting to represent one of the most proud, beautiful and loving counties there is. I will never forget my experience and all of the love you have shown me. Thank you all for all of the memories that you have been a part of. I will be always and forever your 2011 Miss Perry County Fair Queen!

Love Always and Forever,

Karen Nehrkorn

More Than Just a Beauty Queen Being a fair queen is not all about glamour, high heels, flashy crowns and fancy dresses. Being a beauty queen is a lot more work than that! After learning to walk, turn, and spin in various pairs of high heel shoes while wearing business suits, swimsuits, and evening gowns you must squat for a long period of time while pins fly in your hair and you keep the most memorable smile on your face while a crown is pinned to your head and your heart. Being a county fair queen is a job that captivates your heart. You must be proper, poised, intelligent, light on your feet and ready for anything! You must be ready to run through knee deep mud not only carrying a 3-foot tall trophy but also the sweetest little girl on your back screaming with joy and excitement to get out on a muddy, hot, sweaty and bright derby track to share a memorable shot with the mad dog drivers and 1st place winners. Dreams came true when I was rushed out on the pulling track and got to flag my first truck and tractor pull even though I couldn’t run backward fast enough to keep up with a flying truck my wonderful back up carried me to the finish line JUST in time to flag the final spin of the tires. Also riding through various parades and going to fairs listening to all the little kids adore the “pretty princess” and give her a hug. As months fly by and a new year gets closer you prepare for a life changing week to be treated like a true queen and compete to represent your county in hopes to be crowned the state queen. Even if you don’t receive the title your fair board and county welcome you back home with loving and welcoming arms to continue to be their queen and prized possession. Countless hours of hair and make up, shopping for the perfect outfit, working on a scrapbook, fair board meetings, and smiling you will be treated as the best and most beautiful girl because you are Perry County’s Finest and represent the best, most generous and loving county in Illinois, and you will successfully be the Miss Perry County Fair Queen.

Your 2011 Miss Perry County Fair Queen,

Karen Nehrkorn

Gilbert Helvey • Superintendent Amount Offered - $1,409.50 DEPARTMENT RULES Entries will be accepted Saturday June 9, between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. All articles must be in the building by 12:00 p.m. to be eligible for entry. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE. Entries are limited to two (2) under any one premium number. Exhibits will be released Friday, June 15 and must be picked up between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. on this date. All canned goods exhibited must have been processed during the past year. General Rules 1. All entries must have been preserved within the last year (12 months). If fresh produce is used, the exhibit should have been preserved within the last growing season; in no case should this exceed one year.

2. Unsealed exhibits or products showing signs of spoilage will not be judged. 3. An exhibit may not have been previously entered in the same event. 4. Judges are instructed not to award a premium or placing unless the exhibits are worthy. 5. Exhibits without competition will be judged on their own merit and will receive an award or placing only if determined worthy by the judges. 6. Judging will be done by comparison to recognized standards of quality and safety (provide a copy of the score sheet if one is used) and by comparison to other exhibits to determine placing within a class (first, second, third, etc.). 7. Exhibits will not be judged by tasting; visual inspection will be used for the most part. Jars may need to be opened, however, when spoilage is suspected or differences among entries are very small. 8. Youth exhibits are judged separately from adults. 9. The decisions of the judges are final. 10. Foods that are opened during judging will be marked by the judges and should not be eaten when the fair or event is over. Any foods that are considered hazardous to consume will be disposed of by the judges or fair attendants. (This includes the jar or packaging that contains the food.)
