Brookville, PA – The Jefferson County Fair had two fair queens this year! The votes were incredibly close and had to be audited four times, so judges decided that Morgan Bish of Brookville and Danielle VanSteenberg of Corsica would be crowned co-queens of the 2018 Jefferson County Fair.
Each participant had to get a pre-pageant interview in front of the judges, and impromptu question-and-answer section, and a speech about why people should come to the fair.
Bish and VanSteenberg will each get a $1,000 scholarship for their education.
Also competing this year were Tia Barnett, Kylee Fiscus, Ryanne Lindenpitz, and Regan Reitz, all from Brookville. Reitz won Miss Congeniality, and Lindenpitz won the Peoples’ Choice Award.
Lindenpitz also was crowned as the fair princess. Elliana Gow of Brookville was first runner-up for princess, and Krista Reitz of Punxsutanwey was second-runner up.
Ava Orcutt of Corsica was named as the Junior Fair Queen. First runner-up is Mercy Smith of Punxsutawney, and second runner-up is Madelyn Newcome of Brockway. Grace Preston of Brockway won the Peoples’ Choice Award.
