In search of the 2015-16 Ohio Lamb and Wool Queen By: Kristin Reese, Ohio Lamb and Wool Queen Coordinator
The search is on once again! Help us round up the next Ohio Lamb and Wool Queen. The queen serves as a spokesperson for the industry throughout her year of reign at numerous promotional events and activities around the state and will be selected by judges at the Ohio State Fair.
Contestants will attend an interview and answer an impromptu question from a panel of judges live at the conclusion of the Guys and Gals lead competition. The selection of the queen is based on personality, presentation, poise and knowledge of the Ohio Lamb and Wool industry.
Contestants are encouraged to participate in the Guys and Gals Lead competition and we also encourage all ladies between the ages of 17-21 who are involved in the industry to consider applying for this position. This is a terrific opportunity to build a wealth of knowledge of the Ohio lamb and wool industry and expand communication skills and network within Ohio agriculture.
If you or someone you know is interested in applying for the 2015-2016 Ohio Lamb and Wool Queen, please download the application.. All applications must be postmarked by June 20, 2014.
If you would like more information on the Ohio Lamb and Wool Queen contest or would like the Ohio Lamb and Wool Queen to make an appearance at your local event, please contact Kristin Reese at 614-582-3208 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
