Ledyard Fair to Crown Its First Ever King
The search is on for contestants to compete in the first annual Mr. Ledyard event. Applications will be accepted through August 10.
The addition of a male contest, which will only be open to 14-18-year-old boys, has been a popular request for years, pageant organizer Michelle Hinton said to The Day.
"I just really wanted to give the young boys in the town the opportunity to win some scholarship money as well," Hinton said of the competition. Miss Ledyard contenders are vying for a $900 top prize this year, The Day said.
The Mr. Ledyard competition already has a local business sponsor: the Gales Ferry Subway restaurant, The Day article reports.
Contestants are still needed for the September competition. Applications are available at local libraries, the Ledyard Parks and Recreation office, or by calling Michelle Hinton at (860) 464-5008.
