This is a FUN contest.  Judging will not be on typical "pageant rules."  Our goal is that your child will remember this contest as an enjoyable experience.  The MC will interview the child on the stage asking questions such as name, school, about their poster, and otherconversation to help the child draw out their special personalities!


Who can enter?

All girls and boys in grades K-1 — Attending Danville or East Knox School Districts


What do participants need to do?

Present a personal drawing on a poster board of one of the three things below:

  1. Most favorite event at the Turkey Festival
  2. A Turkey
  3. Something that is special to them

(Parents, please do not complete the poster for your child; they will not be judged on the poster drawing.  Questions may be asked by our MC about the pictures that they draw.)

Wear their Turkey Festival T-shirt (choose below), jean shorts, skirts, or pants, and bring their finished poster to the Thursday evening contest.
