The registration deadline for the 2023 Miss Henry County Fair Pageant is almost here.
Those interested in participating in the contest must have their application submitted by Friday, May 26.
The pageant will feature divisions for multiple ages from babies to adults. The “Miss” division winner, which is for ages 17-22, will compete in the Miss Virginia Association of Fairs State Pageant in January 2024.
An entry fee is required for contestants in all age brackets which will range from $40-$75, depending on the division. The pageant is open to surrounding counties if their county is not having a fair pageant. However, contestants for the “Miss” category must live in Henry County or the City of Martinsville.
There will be two special awards for this year’s pageant: Spirit of Miss Henry County Fair Pageant and Miss Outgoing Personality. The Spirit of Miss Henry County Pageant award will go to the contestant that brings the most canned food for donation to the local food bank. The Miss Outgoing Personality award will go to the contestant that raises and submits the most sponsorship dollars.
Jones & DeShon Orthodontists has agreed to be the sponsor for the pageant. Jones & DeShon Orthodontists is the largest Invisalign provider in Virginia and they were voted the #1 Orthodontists in South West Virginia.
The Miss Henry County Fair Pageant is scheduled for June 10 at the Henry County Recreation Center located on 395 John Redd Boulevard, Collinsville, VA 24078.
