Isabella Haen Named 2018 Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/11/2018

Wisconsin's 52nd Fairest of the Fairs is Isabella Haen from Kewaunee County. The Kewaunee native was crowned Wednesday night in Wisconsin Dells after competing against 37 other contestants for this year's title. As Fairest of the Fairs, she becomes the spokesperson for the Wisconsin Association of Fairs, where she will travel to many of the state's county, district and state fairs this summer. The reigning 'Fairest' also serves as the official hostess of the Wisconsin State Fair each year.

Haen, 21, is a graduate of Fox Valley Technical College with a degree in Agribusiness and Science Technology. She is a full-time herdsperson at Kinnard Farms Inc.

"My Fairest journey has made me find my strong suits in public speaking, educating our youth and promoting agriculture," Haen said after being crowned. "I hope to someday become an Animal Nutritionist so that I can have a larger impact on the agricultural industry and animal husbandry."

Isabella replaces outgoing Fairest of the Fairs Rebecca Starkenburg from Lodi in Columbia County.

Also last night, Julia Nunes of the Northern Wisconsin State Fair was named Miss Congeniality at the Wisconsin Association of Fairs' annual convention at the Chula Vista Resort.

Meanwhile, Ashley Miller of the Sheboygan County Fair was named runner-up, with Madison Stronach from the Walworth County Fair being named second runner-up. Kenosha County's Michelle Knapp was third and Kaitlin Konder of St. Croix County was fourth runner-up.

This year's judges were Susan Crane, Bryan Schulz and Stacie Christel.
