Baileigh Burns, 14, was crowned the 2008 Clay County 4-H Fair Princess this year while Shelby Sands, 17, earned the title of 4-H Queen.
The pageant took place June 28 and since that day, both Burns and Sands have been very busy.
Burns shows swine at the fair and this is her fifth year in 4-H.
But since winning the princess title, she's been at the fairgrounds a lot more.
Burns said she gets to the fairgrounds close to 9 a.m. each day and usually doesn't leave until 11 p.m.
She said she begins her mornings by cleaning up her pigpens. She then gives her pigs baths and then it's off to show competitions.
"I don't have time," Burns said. "I just work around stuff. But it's been a blast. I've had a lot of fun."
Burns -- who has competed in pageants before -- said she has attended four or five events daily since earning the crown.
For Sands, it's practically the same.
The soon-to-be junior, Sands said she was aware how many things she would be doing after being crowned queen.
"I've heard from former queens that it would be busy," Sands said. "I was ready for it."
Like Burns, Sands shows pigs in 4-H but has only been involved for three years. She said she got into 4-H after family friends had purchased some pygmy goats. But that first year was kind of difficult.
Sands said her three goats were attacked by pit bulls the first year she participated in 4-H and one of them died.
"I wish I had started earlier," Sands said of being involved in 4-H.
She also has two portraits in the exhibit hall.
Sands wasn't sure she wanted to get involved in the queen contest, but after talking it over with Dianna Knox -- one of the Clay County 4-H Fair coordinators -- she elected to throw herself into competition.
"I ended up winning and I was surprised," Sands said. "I like being here and now I get to be here all the time.
"It's usually just show after show. It's only my third day and I'm getting a little tired. But it's a lot of fun. By the end of the night, I'm usually beat. But I sleep well."
Sands said having the opportunity to represent Clay County is special.
"It is very exciting," she said. "I'm very proud to be a representative of 4-H."
