While not a look-alike contest, girls are required to dress in “prairie girl” attire (of the period 1867-1875) and are asked questions related to Laura’s first two books. They are judged on the basis of the accuracy of their answers, poise under various conditions, and their general appearance. Traditional craft demonstrations, fiddle contest, arts & crafts, craft demonstration by candlelight Sat eve, food & entertainment.
