The Dodge County Fair Association is seeking ambitious, enthusiastic, and outgoing individuals age 18 as of January 2015 to enter the 2014 Dodge County Fairest of the Fair contest. Scholarship money, gifts, and interview experience are only some of the benefits of being named Fairest of the Fair.
The 2014 Fairest of the Fair represents the Dodge County Fair Association as the hostess of the 127th Dodge County Fair, and participates in media and promotion events for the fair. Opportunities include: radio interviews, main stage and 4-H emcee events and assistance in the planning of the next Fairest of the Fair contest. The 2014 Dodge County Fairest of the Fair has the opportunity to participate in the 2015 Wisconsin Fairest of Fairs contest at the Wisconsin Association of Fairs Annual Convention.
The 2013 Dodge County Fairest of the Fair, Taylor Egnarski, is enrolled at the University of Wisconsin- Platteville pursuing a degree in Agribusiness and Media Studies with an emphasis in Marketing and Public Relations. “Participating in the Fairest of the Fair competition can teach young adults so much. I learned so much about myself and how much I can accomplish. As Fairest of the Fair, young adults can share the passion of all aspects of the fair. It is truly a life changing experience and opened so many doors for myself and past Fairest of the Fairs. It is an honor and blessing to be a part of this amazing experience.”
