Fifty-eight counties and over 13,000 miles later, Wisconsin Fairest of the Fair and Kewaunee County resident Isabella Haen is seeing her reign come to a close. Haen was Kewaunee County’s first to take on the statewide role after being chosen at last year’s Wisconsin Association of Fairs Annual Convention in Wisconsin Dells. Bringing the Wisconsin State Fair to a children’s hospital in Milwaukee and striking up a friendship with last year’s Alice in Dairyland winner Kaitlyn Riley were among the highlights during her term. Haen says it was special to have the community support her so much after her selection.
Haen hopes to put her agricultural communications skills to good use after a new Fairest of the Fair is selected on Thursday. Door County’s Claire Olson and Kewaunee County’s Charlene Robinson are among the Fairests of the Fair looking for the opportunity to take her spot during this year’s convention.
