Queen Pageant Guidelines

This is the 55th year of the Miss Moultrie-Douglas Pageant.  In 1976 Merci Izquierdo went on to the State Pageant and won the title of Miss Illinois County Fair Queen.  To this date she has been the only State Queen from Moultrie-Douglas.  However, we have been blessed with 21 Queens that placed in the Top 15, and 1 queen that placed in the Top 3.  The age group for Miss  Moultrie-Douglas is 16-21, please contact us at the information below if you would like to be a contestant!

Jr Miss has been a part of our fair for the past 16 years. This pageant kicks off on the North grandstand on Monday evening. The age group is 11–14. Please contact us if you want to be a part of this year’s Jr Miss!

The Little Miss Pageant has been a part of the Moultrie-Douglas County Fair history for the past 33 years. If your daughter/granddaughter/niece is between the ages of 4–6, give us a call or email. We would love to have her be a part of our Little Miss Pageant!

Pageant Education Scholarship Components and Guidelines

One of the benefits awarded Miss Moultrie-Douglas is an education scholarship.

The general guidelines for this scholarship are as follows:

1. The $2000 award will be paid for use as a student enrolled on a full-time basis at an accredited college, university or trade school. The award must be used in the academic year immediately following the pageant in which it is awarded. In the event the recipient is still attending high school, the award will be held for use in the academic year immediately following the recipient’s high school graduation.

2. Scholarship funds will be made payable to the school in equal installments for the academic year. (i.e., $500 per semester if the academic year consists of 2 terms.) Proof of full-time enrollment must be provided each term prior to award being paid.

3. Recipient will be expected to maintain satisfactory academic progress as well as full-time status for the entire academic year in which the scholarship is used. Satisfactory academic progress will be defined by the institution’s policy. If the recipient fails to meet either of these requirements, the unused portion of the scholarship will be forfeited unless a request for exception due to a special circumstance is filed and approved by the Pageant Director and Board.
