Wisconsin Ag Connection - 11/23/2022

A Wisconsin woman has captured the most votes in the National Cattlemen's Beef Association's 10th annual National Anthem Contest. 20-year-old Franki Moscato of Oshkosh will sing the Star-Spangled Banner at the 2023 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show in New Orleans in February during the opening general session, as well as at the Friday night Party Gras concert.

"Farming has been part of my family's history since before my ancestors arrived from Wales in 1857," said Moscato. "It is an honor to be chosen to sing for an industry that means so much to me."

Moscato first sang the National Anthem at the age of 11, has performed at Lambeau Field and competed on the television show American Idol. She was cast in two feature films and a human trafficking documentary series used in schools across the nation. Franki is also is actively engaged in her community as a hospital volunteer, and created the Franki Moscato Foundation to fight the growing teen suicide epidemic. She inspires kids to recognize bullying and suicide awareness through regular school assembly performances and keynote presentations.

"My goal is to inspire people of all ages to try their best, to take risks and to do things that they otherwise wouldn't attempt," said Moscato.

As the winner of the contest, Moscato will receive round trip airfare to New Orleans, hotel room for three nights, convention registration, a meet-and-greet, plus a pair of boots, jeans and a shirt from Roper or Stetson.

Online voting by the public determined the winner of the contest.
