Entry forms being accepted for Mrs. Boone County 2012

Zionsville — The Boone County Fourth of July Mrs. Boone County committee is now accepting entries for the Mrs. Boone County 2012 pageant.

The committee is working hard planning the pageant, but also having a lot of fun.

“We’re having a great time planning it,” said committee member Shirley McClaine. “We have a former queen on the committee, which makes it nice.”

McClaine said the committee wants as many contestants as possible for this year’s pageant.

Sponsoring organizations — churches, sororities, service organizations — must return an official entry form by Friday, April 20. Sponsors can submit more than one contestant, but each entry costs $25. Checks can be written to the Boone County Fourth of July Committee.

Contestants must be between the ages of 30 and 60, and must have been a resident of Boone County for at least five years. She does not have to be a member of the organization sponsoring her.

The queen selection will be based on responses to the official Boone County resume, which includes questions about community service, hobbies and family life; results of a personal interview with judges prior to the pageant; poise and personality shown on stage, and responses to pageant questions.

The pageant will be held at 7:30 p.m. Saturday,  June 16. No site for the event has been determined as of press time.

Official entry forms can be picked up and returned to Modern Cleaners, 215 W. Washington St., Lebanon; or Vicki Dusek, 742 Franklin Trace, Zionsville. Deadline is Friday, April 20.
