MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- The Evelyn Talbott Community Service Award was presented to Olivia LeMaster as part of the 2010 Miss Berkeley County Youth Fair Contest.
This award is given to honor the memory of Evelyn Talbott, who was one of the originators of the Miss Youth Fair contest and served as the chairman for more than 15 years.
The criteria used to select the winner from the current year's contestants is based on the service that each has given to her school, church, organizations to which she belongs and her community.
Two sisters, both Miss Berkeley County Youth Fair Queens, Kathy Hutzler Bennett (1968) and Colleen Hutzler Miller (1970) started the award in 1989 to recognize a contestant who displayed the quality of service, much like Talbott did.
An engraved, personalized clock is given to the winner signifying the time that she has given in service to others.
Olivia was chosen because of her service in the New Seekers 4-H Club of Martinsburg, and in her community.
