(Lewistown, IL) -- The Fulton County Fair is less than a month away from starting. It starts once again with the annual Queen Pageant. This year there are 16 contestants taking part in the pageant. The first contestant to be introduced is Ashtyn Stufflebeam of Cuba. Stufflebeam says the reason she decided to take part in the pageant is past queen contestants. Stufflebeam will be attending Midwest Technical Institute in East Peoria beginning this fall. She is the daughter of Terry and Corrina Stufflebeam. Stufflebeam's sponsor is the Cuba FFA.
