Eleven years ago, Peters was the winner of Little Miss, but now she is the 2017 Miss Fall Festival of Leaves making her childhood dreams come true.
Peters, a student at Paint Valley, will also receive a $1,000 scholarship.
1st Attendant is Hallie Lallier from Unioto HS. 2nd Attendant is Hannah Skinner of Adena HS. Jordan Starcher of Adena HS is 3rd Attendant and Electa Seymour of Southeastern HS is the 4th Attendant.
The contestants were judged by four past Queens and were also questioned by other queens from previous queens dating back to 1968.
