Jackie Rosenbush Named 2022 Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/13/2022

Wisconsin's 56th Fairest of the Fairs is Jackie Rosenbush from Washburn County. The Spooner native was crowned Wednesday night in Wisconsin Dells after competing against 31 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.

"The Fairest of the Fairs program means so much to so many people as it represents honor, integrity and strength for the women who represent and promote the local county fair industry," Rosenbush told Wisconsin Ag Connection. "For me, my goal is to make as many genuine personal connections as possible as I travel the state this summer attending those county fairs."

Rosenbush is a graduate of Spooner High School and is attending the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, majoring in agricultural education. She is also a former state FFA officer, serving as Sentinel in 2021-22.

Jackie replaces outgoing Fairest Cayley Vande Berg from Fond du Lac County, who served two consecutive years as a result of the pandemic.

"I feel so incredibly blessed to have had this opportunity to grow my fair passion, create new friendships, experience the industry from a new lens, advance my public speaking and communication skills, and so much more," Vande Berg said. "The Fairest program will forever hold a special spot in my heart, and I look forward to creating more fair memories in the many years to come."

Meanwhile, Lydia Luebke of the Manitowoc County Fair was named runner-up, with Courtney Moser from Vernon County being second runner-up. Calumet County's Hannah Roehrig was third and Jaynie Rule, Iowa County, was fourth runner-up. Roehrig was also chosen as Miss Congeniality.

Serving as judges were Jennifer Dunn, CVFM, Kim Berens and Stacie Christel.
