Mariah Kirtlan thought there must have been a mistake when the announcer read her name off as this year’s Wabash County 4-H Fair Queen. 

“I thought they called the wrong number!” Kirtlan said, laughing. “This was my last year and I was really sad, because I just wanted to at least get on the court. And then I was like ‘Oh my gosh! No way!’”

The 2019 Wabash County 4-H Fair Queen Pageant took place Wednesday night, July 10, in the Honeywell Center’s Ford Theater. Kirtlan’s court consists of Haylie Miller (first runner-up), Ally Keaffaber (second runner-up) and Karrigan Yard (third runner-up). Ariel Dale was awarded the honor of Miss Congeniality.
