They may have not finished in the top five overall, but Claire Olson and Paige Bellin are proud of what they were able to accomplish at this year’s Wisconsin Fairest of the Fair competition. Olson, the 2018 Door County Fairest of the Fair, got to see two of her classmates from UW-River Falls place in the top 5 of the competition, including the winner from Fond du Lac County Cayley Vande Berg. Olson says it was great to interact with them and the other contestants.
Meeting people with diverse backgrounds was the favorite part of the competition for Bellin, the 2019 Kewaunee County Fairest of Fair. She says she learned a lot during the experience.
The Wisconsin Association of Fairs Convention was the last act as Fairest for both Olson and Bellin. Olson will continue her agriculture studies at UW-River Falls while Bellin works as a Marketing Assistant at Dental Health Products in New Franken. Both girls do hope to continue to give back to their fairs and the Fairest programs.
