A new county princess was crowned Saturday at the 54th Annual Clay County Fair Pageant, at the Clay County 4-H Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall.

Thirteen-year-old Brazil native Darci Chambers, daughter of Dave and Lisa Chambers, took the honor of princess, during the two-hour ceremony at the fairgrounds. A noticeably surprised Chambers expressed honor and perplexity towards her achievement.

"I'm in total shock," Chambers said. "All the other contestants were wonderful. I didn't expect to win at all."

The award of princess, vacated by 2008 winner Baileigh Burns, was scored based 50 percent on interviews conducted before the pageant, 20 percent on a casual wear exhibition and 30 percent on a formal wear display, Chambers defeated first runner-up Mannah Mace and second runner-up Emily Sands. Sands also took home the title of Miss Congeniality.

Chambers is serving her first year as a junior leader in the 4-H organization. During the school year, she won the "All-A's" award in her seventh grade class at North Clay Middle School. Clay County 4-H Youth Extension Educator Melanie Brown said she was very impressed with Chambers and thought she would be a great representation for the county.

"I can see leadership potential in (Darci)," Brown said. "She will serve Clay County well."

Chambers reflected on her time preparing for the pageant fondly and said she was grateful for the opportunity to meet a lot of new people, and was even more excited about the chance to represent the 4-H organization.

"I had so much fun," Chambers said. "I'm really looking forward to having a wonderful time (as princess)."
