The Logan County Fair Queen Pageant took place at the beginning of August and a new queen was crowned.
Meg Meeker, whose family hails from nearby Emden, is a senior at the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana where she is studying agricultural leadership and science education. Like 2016 Queen Michelle Paulus, Meg comes from a farming family.
On a recent Saturday, we made Meg's portraits for the upcoming state fair queen competition. The competition requires two photographs for each contestant: an 8x10 in queen attire and a portrait in business attire. As expected, it was a pleasure to work with Meg and pageant director Bethany Rademaker for the pictures.
Best of luck to you, Meg, at state and in your final semesters at the U of I.
