Heise to represent Washington County for Miss Maryland Agriculture title

August 19, 2013

Twenty-three young women, including  Janai Heise of Washington County, will be competing for the Miss Maryland Agriculture title during opening night festivities at the Maryland State Fair in Timonium, Md. The on-stage contest will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday in the Cow Palace at the fairgrounds.

The 2012 Miss Maryland Agriculture Phyllis Mc-Kenzie of Carroll County, Md., will pass on the responsibilities of the state’s agricultural spokesperson at the conclusion of the two-day competition sponsored by the Maryland Farm Bureau and Maryland State Fair.

Representing every county in the state, the participants have already won their county titles and will represent the farming industry at numerous events throughout the year, educating consumers about the food and fiber business. Along with the state winner, four “court” members will be selected.

The Maryland Farm Bureau is a private, nonprofit membership organization.

It is controlled by its members through the democratic process and is financed by voluntary membership dues. Its strength comes from the active participation of more than 37,000 member families who belong to the state’s 23 county farm bureaus.
