Sadie Evans, daughter of Jason and Angie Evans, was crowned the 2016 Hopkins County Dairy Festival Queen Saturday night, securing her status with a title-winning performance of “No Good Deed” from Broadway's “Wicked.” 

Queen Sadie also received the award for talent and the $500 scholarship that goes along with it as well as a $1,000 scholarship for being crowned royalty.

The 57th Annual Dairy Festival Pageant was held in the newly-remodeled auditorium of the Hopkins County Regional Civic Center Saturday night

The most memorable part of the journey to being crowned Dairy Festival queen for Evans has been, “the practices, just getting to sit in the audience while the other girls were performing and spending time with the girls. We weren't best friends before this and I have gotten to grow closer to them.”  

Evans also looks forward to spending more time with the younger kids and encouraging them. “Being Dairy Festival queen will allow me to do that,“ she said. 

She will represent the Dairy Festival and Hopkins County at other pageants, official appearances and ribbon cuttings for the next 12 months as she completes her senior year at Sulphur Springs High School. After that, Queen Sadie plans to attend Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., to pursue a degree in musical performance and songwriting.

The queen’s court includes:

  • First runner-up Emma Boyett, who played “Beauty and the Beast” on the oboe, was awarded a $750 scholarship.
  • Second runner-up Ann-Marie Winborn, who performed an interpretive dance to “Home” by Aron Wright, received a $500 scholarship.
  • Third runner-up Lauren Helm, who used sign language to interpret the contemporary song “Revelations,” received a $250 scholarship.
  • Alexis Howard, who performed a lyrical dance to “Garden” by Needtobreathe, was named Miss Congeniality by her fellow contestants.

Ann-Marie Winborn sold the most tickets with 230 sold. Story Thompson sold the second-most tickets. 

Other contestants were Tahtiana King and La'Mier Pryor.

The theme of the 2016 Dairy Festival “Dance to the Moosic” inspired many floats among the “Moovers and Shakers” (pre-school chldren) and businesses in the community.

The award for first place kiddie float went to Anndi Jones and Brady Thomas for their float, “Square Dance 'til the Cows Come Home.” The award for second place float went to Kinley Grand-Lienard and Fox Martin for their “Swing Era” float. The award for third place float went to Sophie Pickett and Maverick Morton for their “Wooden Western” float. All Moovers and Shakers took home participation trophies handed out by 2015 Queen Sidney Dietze.

Businesses in the community also received awards for their floats. The award for first place commercial float was awarded to Melba's Creations and first place non-profit went to First Baptist Church for their “Submerged” Vacation Bible School float.

Before the judges handed in the envelopes with their decisions, 2015 Dairy Festival Queen Sidney performed “Out of Hiding” for her final performance as royalty.

When the moment came and the name of the 2016 Dairy Festival Queen was announced, “I laughed because I was so relived and excited,“ Queen Sadie said. “I have to thank my parents, the Dairy Festival Board and my sponsors, Dial Study Club and Askins Propane. I also want to thank Dawn Doyle Jones who helped with my talent, and Rose of Sharon who loaned me all the items for the set for my talent.”
