Little Miss Hartford

Congratulations to Willow Jaspers! Willow was crowned the 2024 Little Miss Hartford on Thursday, June 13th, 2024. Willow is the daughter to Grant & Becky Jaspers. Willow enjoys playing soccer, basketball, guitar and singing. Willow also enjoys playing with her friends, spending time with her family, art, running and animals (especially her puppies). Willow said she wanted to be crowned Little Miss Hartford because she likes her community and it would mean so much to her and her family. Congratulations again to Willow!

All girls who were in the 1st and 2nd grade this past school year and live in the West Central School district are encouraged to participate. The pageant will be held as part of the Jamboree Days festivities with the pageant being held on the Thursday before Jamboree Days. On that Wednesday evening, all contestants will meet the judges and participate in a rehearsal. We will be getting you more details about that week when we get closer to the date. 

Being Little Miss Hartford is a great honor and also a wonderful learning experience. As Little Miss Hartford responsibilities include representing Hartford in several Jamboree Day events with potential to participate in other Hartford events throughout the year. It will be lots of fun!
