The Adams County Fair recognized a local girl with a special award on Wednesday, July 26th during the Little Miss and Mister Pageant.
The ‘Be Like Grace’ Award was established to remember and honor Grace Schell, the 2011 Little Miss Adams County Fair. She died in a tragic atv accident in 2020. She was known in the Liberty area as a girl who was kind to everyone she met. The “Be Like Grace” award recognizes a special contestant who shows kindness to other children or contestants around her.
The 2023 “Be Like Grace” award was given to 5 year-old Sylvie Dedert. She is the daughter of Scott and Dena Dedert of Ursa.
Sylvie will attend Unity Elementary School this fall as a Kindergartener. She participates in the Great River Ski Team. She likes swimming, boating with her family and playing with her friends.
