It's great to be Queen, search begins for 2016 royalty


What young lady, aged 16 to 19, wouldn’t want a $250 scholarship, $75 in Chamber Dollars, and a pedicure or manicure?

That is what the 2016 Farmer’s Day Queen will be awarded once chosen. Applications are currently being accepted for the position, which must be filled by a young lady who resides in Kimball or Banner Counties.

Applications are available at the high schools in Kimball, Banner County and Potter-Dix. These applications must be signed and returned to the Kimball High School or school secretary by Friday, Sept. 16, and must include an essay.

Essays and applications will be read by the Farmer’s Day Queen Committee, comprised of Katie Haun, Maggie Laughlin, Ashley Layher and Lindsey Maas.

“The four of us will read essays that the girls write, and that is how the Queen is chosen,” Maas said. “Since the theme of Farmer’s Day this year is Melody of Praise, the essay topic was, ‘If someone you’ve never met asked you about Kimball, how would you “sing” it’s praises?’”

In addition to a queen, the committee chooses two attendants who will each receive $75 in Chamber Dollars.

“The queen and attendants are expected to ride through the Farmer’s Day Parade and be present for the day’s activities to represent Kimball,” Maas said. “They also help with the Parade of Lights and Santa’s Den. Another opportunity for them to help is with the Easter Egg hunt in the Spring.”
