Meghan Buechel Named 2019 Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/10/2019

Wisconsin's 53rd Fairest of the Fairs is Meghan Buechel from Brown County. The Wrightstown native was crowned Wednesday night in Wisconsin Dells after competing against 41 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.

"As candidates, we had so much to learn from one another throughout this process," Buechel said upon being crowned. "I am looking forward to meeting people across Wisconsin and hearing what they have to say about Wisconsin Fairs and agriculture."

Buechel, 20, is a graduate of Wrightstown High School and is attending the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse to earn a graduate degree in occupational therapy. She is a client assistant at CP in Green Bay and works in the food service area for Mid Vallee Golf Course. Her fair involvement through FFA and Wrightstown 4-H included projects like ceramics, sewing, woodworking, shooting sports, rabbits, sheep and swine.

Meghan replaces outgoing Fairest of the Fairs Isabella Haen from Kewaunee County.

Meanwhile, Sharla Boehlke of the Ozaukee County Fair was named runner-up, with Molly Mcilquham from the Northern Wisconsin State Fair being named second runner-up. Outagamie County's Morgan Rynish was third and Emily Franke of Fond du Lac County was fourth runner-up. Abigail Bralick of Waukesha County was selected among her peers as Miss Congeniality.

Judges for this year's contest included Stacie Christel from Green Bay, director of sales at Aloft, Susan Zblewski from Birmanwood who works with United Health Care, and Jo Reynolds who manages the Warren County Fair in Indianola, Iowa.
