CAMDEN — Eight contestants recently competed for the title of Camden Bicentennial King and Queen.

They will represent Camden during the coming year at local paradeas and events, including Camden’s two-day bicentennial celebration on Aug 31-Sept 1, 2018.
Jasmine is a senior at Preble Shawnee and is the oldest granddaughter of Jay and Kathy Mabry.
