2019 Wabash County Fair Princess Contestants

Here are the young ladies vying to become the 2019 Wabash County Fair Princess that will be crowned the evening of July 14th.

Madisyn Etheridge   My name is Madisyn Etheridge and I want to be your 2019 Wabash County Fair Princess. I am the daughter of Nate and Natalie Stevenson and John and Christy Etheridge. This is my fourth year being involved in the Junior Fair. I am participating in the fair princess contest because I think it will be a lot of fun and I wanted to try something new. Now, a few things about me. In my spare time, you will find me on the farm working with and training my horse, MoMo. I have been working hard to become a great barrel racing team with MoMo. This fair season, I hope to shave a couple seconds off my fastest barrel racing time. My goal is to eventually teach him to do liberty work. Hopefully someday I will own my own horses and live on a farm to raise livestock. Along with horseback riding, I stay involved in my school and church activities. I am starting my third year as an MCJHS cheerleader. We cheer for junior high football and basketball games. This year, I was selected as a UCA all-American cheerleader. I am an active member in the youth group at Parkview Christian Church. I also volunteer in our church nursery. My family and friends are an important part of my life. We enjoy spending time at our family cabin at Mesa Lake. We also like taking family vacations. One of my favorite trips, as a family, was visiting my cousins in Germany. I would like to thank Wabash General Hospital for their generosity in sponsoring me.

Raven Adams   Hello my name is Raven Adams and I am the 13-year-old daughter of Jenny and Kevin Adams. I am a member of the Allendale Twisters 4-H Club. Some of my interest include art and the K-Pop group BTS, along with other K-Pop artists. Some of my current and future goals include being involved in a foreign exchange student program like another local student Maddie Merritt has become involved in. Following along with her travels has sparked my interest in foreign countries and learning about other cultures. One country I would like to visit would be South Korea. I find them interesting and am reading a book to learn some of their language and customs. Something others may not know about me is that I come from a big family. I have four brothers and three sisters. I am the sixth one if going in order. I also enjoy sewing. I learned from my granny when I was seven and have loved it ever since. I am currently working on pillows which are one of my junior fair projects. I want to be part of this competition because I love 4-H and I want to not only represent my club but my community. I would like to thank my sponsor MackPhotography.
