It’s Miss Samantha Nicole Trout, the daughter of Mike and Crystal Trout in Olney. Congratulations to Samantha as she’ll take over the responsibilities of outgoing Queen Kylar Craig.

A tip of the hat to all twelve of the contestants on a job well done and thanks to departing Queen Kylar Craig for representing Olney and all of Richland County over the past year, plus capturing 1st Runner Up in the Miss Illinois County Fair Queen Pageant earlier this year. Also thanks to this year’s Fair Queen Pageant Directors, Committee, and sponsors for making the annual event another success.
