2014 Idaho County Fair Royalty
From the Premium Book
Queen Holli Uhlorn
Uhlorn will be a senior at Prairie Junior-Senior High School in Cottonwood this fall. She is the daughter of Darrel and Mary Uhlorn.
“This is a great way to represent your county and have a chance to make great friends,” Uhlorn said.
Uhlorn has been involved in Prairie League, Knowledge Bowl, Drug Free Group, Catholic Youth Group, volleyball, cheerleading, softball and student council. She is a member of the Indoor/Outdoor 4-H Club, which is also her sponsor.
In her spare time Uhlorn works as a farmhand for Uhlorn Farms and for Cottonwood Youth Sports.
Following high school graduation, Uhlorn plans to attend the University of Idaho where she would like to obtain a degree in agricultural business.
A couple of little known facts about Uhlorn: She has been taking tap dancing lessons for 13 years and she knows how to drive a grain Truck.
Her favorite parts about the fair? “The Two-Minute Talent Show and the Lions’ cheeseburgers!”
“I hope everyone will come out and enjoy our wonderful little fair and have a great time there,” she smiled.
Queen Holli Uhlorn was asked her most memorable event of the year. She said the Orofino parade. It was one of the earliest events and the three of them got to spend some time together at the Carnival after the Parade and get to know each other.
1st Princess Maria Munger
Munger will be a junior at Prairie Junior/Senior High School this fall. She is the daughter of Ben and Maureen Munger (the 1990 Idaho County Fair Queen) of Cottonwood and granddaughter of Leon and Sheryl Slichter of Grangeville and Christine Munger of Cottonwood.
She is a member of Cottonwood Saddliers 4-H Club and is sponsored by Arnzen Building Construction. She will be in choir and drama as well as a mock trial club at school but when it comes to sports she laughed, “I’m all brains and no brawn, thank you very much!”
Munger has worked as a peer minister at her church, where she is also in youth group and choir, and as a nanny and housekeeper. Following graduation she plans to go into law or psychology.
“Being fair royalty is an experience that makes you feel beautiful,” Munger said. “It also teaches you a lot about hard work, determination and cooperation.”
She said her favorite part of the year was the Little Princess Tea Party.
“I loved being with all the little girls and seeing their beautiful smiles and dresses,” she said.
When First Princess Maria Munger was asked what her most memorable part of the year was, she said the Princess Tea Party where she got to see the
rest of the royalty interact with all the little girls.
2nd Princess Emily McHugh
McHugh is a senior at Prairie Junior/Senior High School and is the daughter of Susanne Keating and Allen Meyer. She is a member of the Indoor/Outdoor 4-H Club, which is also her sponsor. She has been involved in FFA, BPA, Prairie League, Drug Free Group, Academic Bowl, cheerleading, track and youth group.
Following graduation, McHugh plans to attend college and obtain a degree in accounting.
“Something that few people know about me is I am shy. Royalty has been helping me with this, tough, because as a princess you can’t be shy and stand in a corner!” McHugh smiled. “I would encourage other girls to try out because it is a great experience and you learn so much. It’s great to be a role model to young girls which to me has been the best part.”
Second Princess Emily McHugh was asked her most memorable event of the year. She said the Asotin parade which was their first with the new float and dresses and they were told they looked like the girls from the movie “Frozen.” She felt that was the best compliment they could get!
