(SALEM) - Erica Ewen is Miss Washington County 2012.
Moments after being crowned Monday evening, the 19-year-old daughter of Todd and Jana Ewen said, "Right now I can't feel anything!"
Erica said she's looking forward to handing out ribbons at the remainder of the livestock shows, as well as showing her goats Tuesday. She's a 10-year 4-H member whose projects have included hogs and cattle. "That's just part of growing up on a farm," she said.
Helping her this week will be her court, which includes first runner-up Jessica Axsom.
Jessica is 17 and the daughter of Lisa Lemmons and Brian Axsom. She will be a senior at Salem High School.
Mariah Combs was chosen second runner-up. She's 17, a senior at West Washington, and the daughter of Travis and Tammy Elliott.
Rounding out the court is Caitlin Agan, 19, the daughter of Bob and Terri Agan. Caitlin is a sophomore at Ball State University.
Tuesday night, Allie Taylor will hand over her crown as the Miss Washington County Teen is chosen. The pageant begins at 8.
