Though the lights shine brightest during fair week, the Fairests in Door and Kewaunee County still work hard the other 51 weeks of the year. The 2018 Door County Fairest of the Fair Claire Olson and the 2019 Kewaunee County Fairest of the Fair Paige Bellin are preparing for next month’s state competition after a year of visiting different local events and other public appearances. As for 2019 Door County Fairest of Fair Katie Guilette, she’s already working hard contacting businesses to support the fair and the program in 2020. With her reign ending at the Door County Fair next year, Guilette encourages teens to apply with some simple advice.
To remain eligible for your $1000 leadership scholarship, future Door County Fairests of the Fair need to be 18 by January 1st, 2020, have your primary residence be within the county, and be available to attend a variety of different events. Kewaunee County named Kiley Pagel and Morgan Servaes their Fairest and Junior Fairest of the Fair at a gala event last month.
