Who will be the next Farmers Day Prince and Princess?
“If you are age 4-7 years old by June 20, 2019 and live in the Jesup School District, you are eligible to participate in the Farmers Day Prince and Princess contest!” said Jesup Public Library Director Becky Burke.

A limited number of applications are now available at the Jesup Public Library at 721 Sixth Street. Parents are asked to stop in and fill out the application, provide a photo of their child, and receive detailed information on the contest.

“The Prince and Princess contest has been the main event for Thursday night at Farmers Day for decades,” Burke said.

This year, the contest is being organized by Jesup Library Director Becky Burke and will include music, lots of proud parents and family members and about two dozen young prince and princess candidates. The youngsters are interviewed on stage in front of a packed audience at the downtown park pavilion, plus a set of judges who watch and listen carefully to figure out who the 2019 winners will be.

All contestants will receive ride tickets and treats. The winners will be crowned Thursday night, June 20, and asked to ride in a special convertible during the Great Farmers Day Parade on Saturday, June 22.

Typically all the candidate spots are filled each year, so stop at the Jesup Public Library today to sign up. All candidates will be featured in a special photo feature in the Jesup Citizen Herald prior to Farmers Day. The deadline to sign up for this year’s contest is Friday, May 24.
