WASHINGTON COUNTY - Erin Canfield was a shoo-in to become the Washington County Ag Expo queen for 2006.
Sure, she was the only contestant, but emcee Robbie Shaw said Canfield's leadership and agricultural background will make her a fine queen.
Canfield, 15, of Sharpsburg, was crowned the queen Friday a little before 6 p.m., and performed her first official duty as queen - awarding prizes to the top finishers in the demolition derby - a couple of hours later.
Although she was the only contestant, Canfield still had to answer questions posed to her by the event's emcee. To her right, cows mooed and to her left, sheep bleated - perfect brackets to capture the agricultural flair of the moment.
