Hello everyone! My name is Taylor Hutson and I am very grateful and excited to be your 2021 Elbert County Fair Queen alongside Hannah Thomas, my amazing princess.
I am 17 years old and a Junior at Elizabeth High School. I have been in 4-H and a part of the Kiowa Community 4-H for 11 years now, doing a variety of projects. This year I intend on doing the horse, steer, and shooting sports. I am also a part of the horse bowl and hippology teams that the 4-H program puts on. This year I am also my club's vice president.
Outside of 4-H and royalty I enjoy trail riding and being a part of the Elizabeth High School Marching Band Color Guard. I am interested in possibly going into some sort of engineering or business field after I graduate high school.
I am very excited to be doing lots of local events throughout the year of 2021. Even though our has been drastically different due to covid this year I have still enjoyed the fun and amazing activities we have done this year and I am very excited to see what the rest of the year has for us and I’m excited to go to as many events as possible to promote the fair.
None of this would be possible without the support of my amazing family, especially my mom Vicki Hutson, she has supported me through all of this. I am also very thankful for the Thomas family and all they do to help out throughout the year.
I am looking forward to the rest of this amazing year and I’m excited to see you all at the 2021 Elbert County Fair.
2021 Elbert County Fair Queen
Hello Everyone! My name is Hannah Thomas and I am your 2021 Elbert County Fair Princess! I am so thankful to have this opportunity to serve my community in this position and am thrilled to be a part of such an amazing program. My family has lived in Colorado for 11 years, and have been a part of the Elbert county community for 9. I am a freshman in highschool, just beginning to explore my passions and dreams, and I am full of excitement for the future. I am very excited to be able to become even more integrated in the community and to share my love for agriculture and animals through my title.
Riding has been a central part of my life for as long as I can remember, and I am more than grateful. My passion and respect for animals and agriculture has been prominent throughout my life but has definitely encouraged my dedication to my elective activities, and my plans for the future. I would like to attend college and go into veterinary school, or into the medical field to continue my career of helping others and making an impact on the lives of everyone I meet.
I’ve participated in the Elbert County Fair for the last 8 years as a 4-Her. I’ve had the opportunity to show horses for 7 of those 8, and have exhibited at fair in many other venues including Shooting Sports, Leather working, Dog, the Performing Arts show and more. I am also Vice President for my club and for youth council this year, which has been a blast so far. Though this last fair was different, without all the hustle and bustle the community brings, I think this should only encourage us to make the 2021 Elbert County Fair the best one yet!
Though this year presented, yes I’m going to say it, some unprecedented circumstances, I have been incredibly lucky to have had the team I did to make it through this year. My parents, Jeff and Sarah Thomas have been so supportive throughout this year, and have driven me to many events, put in time and effort into my year, and have encouraged me to continue to follow my dreams. In addition, my siblings, Josie and Eli have been inspiring me throughout this year, throwing bobby pins my way, or helping me fix my chaps horseback. Both of Taylor’s parents have been a blessing this year as well, a resource of knowledge and advice throughout this year. Her mom, Vicki Hutson has been kind enough to give me rides to many different events, and was always looking out for us girls!
Co-Coordinators MaryLouise Jacobson and Shawnah Royston have also been a great help this year. I certainly couldn’t have asked for better coordinators. They’ve driven Taylor and I places, gone shopping with us, and overall made this year so much fun. I couldn’t have done it without them. Finally, I am grateful to have had Taylor Hutson as my queen this year. The bond we’ve made this year will last a lifetime, and I am so thankful to have had such an amazing partner in crime. This year of royalty is certainly influential, and I am sure as I continue into adulthood I will continue to use the skills this program has taught me. I hope to see you all at the 2021 Elbert
