Monday night, 12 young ladies stood before three out-of-town judges in hopes of becoming the 2009 Miss Owen County Fair.
After a two-hour contest that included formal wear and swimsuit competitions, the judges’ decision became final, and Shadow Perry was crowned Miss Owen County Fair.
Perry, who has been participating in Owen County pageants since she was a baby, said she feels at ease now that the pageant is over.
“I feel awesome and relieved,” Perry said. “I’ve been doing this all my life and it feels great to win.”
