Jamere "JD" Edwards and Brianna Mae Smith took the top honors in Monday's Little Mr. And Miss Cole County competition.

Twenty-four kids registered for the annual even held Monday at the Jefferson City Jaycees Cole County Fair. Sheila Suess, the fair's special events coordinator, said the contestants were judged according to their on-stage presence and adherence to the theme, which was the same as the fair's theme this year: "It's a family tradition."

Edwards, the son of Cieara Edwards of Jefferson City, wore a Jamaican soccer outfit, while Brianna dressed like a Mizzou cheerleader.

Other contestants dressed like firefighters, hunters, fishermen, carpenters and military personnel, she said.
