Applications Open for Little Miss Friendly to Determine Official Hostess of Southwest Washington Fair


The Southwest Washington Fair is returning on Aug. 16 and applications are open for the Little Miss Friendly program. 

Applications are available at and must be submitted by July 29 at 5 p.m. 

Little Miss Friendly serves as the official hostess and living logo of the Southwest Washington Fair. 

The Little Miss Friendly program was started in 1968 to help market the fair and showcase how “friendliness” defined Southwest Washington.

A contest is held each summer at the Southwest Washington Fair to select Little Miss Friendly. The contest is open to girls 8 to 10 years old. 

The 2022 Little Miss Friendly will spend six days greeting visitors at the fair and promoting the event. During the remainder of her year-long reign, Little Miss Friendly will attend “parades, coronations, teas and many other events as the official representative of the Southwest Washington Fair,” according to a news release.
