Contestants compete for cash and prizes, including a Union County Fair Board sponsored trip to Springfield for the opportunity to compete with 70+ other county fair queens for the title of Miss Illinois County Fair. Each contestant will be judged in interview, speech, swimsuit, evening gown, and an on-stage question.

  • Contestants must be a resident of Union County or a resident of Jackson, Johnson, Pulaski, Alexander or Massac County(Miss division ONLY). Additional counties added  do NOT have a county fair queen pageant. If any of the added counties add a fair queen pageant to their fair, those counties will no longer be eligible to compete in the Miss Union County Fair Queen Pageant.

  • She may not be competing or have competed in another county fair pageant in the current year and cannot be a former queen of another county fair.
