A total of 55 area youth ages 3-5, including 37 girls and 18 boys, participated in the 2011 Little Mister and Miss Moniteau County contest Tuesday, Aug. 2, at the main arena of the Moniteau County Fairgrounds, where judges ultimately chose Walker Cary, 4, and Kierstyn Lawson, 5, to wear the crowns.
