The Fair Queen Committee will present a gift to each contestant. In addition the Fair Queen Committee hopes to continue offering the same prizes as in the past for the Fair Queen, first and second runners-up, Miss Congeniality, and top ticket seller. These prizes have included jewelry, gift certificates to clothing stores, and college scholarships. Funds for the scholarships are acquired annually, so the amounts are not certain. But in the past we have been able to award scholarships of as much as $1000 to the Fair Queen, and $500 to the first and second runners-up. We have also been able to award smaller scholarships to the winner of Miss Congeniality.
