RANGELEY — The Maine Forestry Museum, formerly the Rangeley Lakes Region Logging Museum, will host their  Little Miss and Mister Woodchip Contest to be held at 7 p.m. Friday, July 28, at the Forestry Museum grounds, 221 Stratton Road, Dallas Plantation. All children ages 6 to 8 are welcome to sign up.

The Woodchip program is part of the museum’s 37th annual Logging Festival Friday and Saturday, July 28 and 29.

Contestants may sing a song or recite a poem; they may choose a favorite or write their own. Other performances, such as dancing or playing musical instruments, will not be accepted toward the competition.

Every Woodchip contestant receives a prize. Winners will ride in the Little Miss and Mister Woodchip float in the Forestry Museum parade on July 29 and be introduced at the festival after the parade.

To enter children in the contest, contact Liz Pimentel at 917-836-1632.

This year a special event will be the appearance of clogging groups InClogNeato and Triple C Dance Team after the contest. Also on hand will be the Pulled Together Band, playing bluegrass and folk tunes.
