According to a report from the Ripley Bee, Williams' artistic effort was selected as the junior fair logo for the event. Along with the John Deere tractor, her picture showcased a barn and other traditional farm images.
"I have been drawing all of my life, but for about the last three years I have really gotten into it," she said, according to the paper.
Mike Brueggeman, who has lived in Ripley for 12 years, won the senior logo contest. His design, which reflected the event's theme of The Brown County Fair - A Tradition Like No Other, is featured on the cover of the book that accompanies the celebration.
These types of art contests are not uncommon for fairs across the country, as they provide area residents with a way to take ownership in the events. Furthermore, other features - like 4-H competitions - give the chance for even more participation.
