Miss, Junior Miss & Little Miss Highlands County
These pageants are held annually during the Highlands County Fair. Each year these young contestants show their poise and grace by gliding across our multi-level stage in heels and an evening gown, most with nerves on edge while entertaining a large crowd in the Highlands County Fair Convention Center. Their personalities are also on display in the form of smiling faces, while tough, candid questions are answered to earn a series of points during the evening competition. These points, combined with others, help to determine the next pageant queen in each division.
Additional awards, such as Miss Congeniality and Most Photogenic are also given at the end of the pageant. The Highlands County Fair Association also offers the winner(s) a choice of a $1,000.00 college scholarship or entry into Miss Florida USA.
