Fairest of the Fair

 Hello Everyone!
     My name is Annah Lund and it has been my pleasure to serve as the 2023 Juneau County Fairest of the Fair! I reside in Mauston with my family and I am currently attending Viterbo University in La Crosse Wisconsin, to major in Nursing. In the future I wish to become a Pediatric Nurse and work in the NICU.
     I have been attending the Juneau County Fair since I was young with my family and started showing as a Cloverbud. I have shown in the Rabbit project for 6 years as well as exhibiting photography, foods and nutrition, and art projects. The fair and 4-H have been a part of my life for over 10 years and I would like to thank everyone for always supporting me in my many projects.
     After being crowned the 2023 Juneau County Fairest, I have participated in many community events such as the Parkfest Parade in Lyndon Station WI, and most importantly the week of the Fair. At the beginning of August, I attended the Wisconsin State Fair for the Fairest of the Fairs Reunion Day and met some amazing girls there! I had a wonderful time at the State Fair as I met people from all over Wisconsin and of course Sharlene, the 2023 Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs.
     At the Juneau County Fair, I performed my duties as the Fairest of the Fair as well as showing some of my projects. My many Fairest duties include: attending the dog show on Sunday, Face to Face judging on Monday, attending the rabbit show on Tuesday, introducing myself at the rodeo on Wednesday and Thursday, attending the Dairy, Beef, Swine and Sheep shows throughout the week and many other various appearances during the week. On Saturday, Alice in Dairyland (Ashley) and The Wisconsin State Fairest of the Fairs (Sharlene) attended the Juneau County Fair Dairy Breakfast and walked with exhibitors and I up to the Fairview Nursing home to visit with the residents and to see some of the animals our exhibitors were showing. This was one of my favorite parts of Fair week as the residents were so happy to see us and all the animals that the exhibitors brought with them. On Sunday, the 2023 Fairest team participated in the Fair Parade and we all had a blast seeing everyone out in the community supporting the fair.
     After a long fair week I headed off to college to start studying for my degree, but don’t worry I still came home for many events. One event that I had the privilege of attending was the Vernon County Fair where my college roommate is Fairest of the Fair as well! I also attended the Warrens Cranberry Festival and rode in the Parade. While at Cranfest we met Miss America (Grace) who is representing Wisconsin across the whole nation as well as many other royalties. In October we did Trunk or Treat for the Mauston and other surrounding communities and we counted every cow costume we saw. It was 5 in total! In December we participated in the Necedah Christmas Parade. These are just some of my favorite events we did to represent Juneau County!
     The Wisconsin Association Fairest of the Fair Convention was one of the best experiences I have had while being Fairest. These busy four days were full of lessons on public speaking, etiquette training and meeting many new people. I learned so many life skills that I will carry on throughout my life such as interviewing skills for upcoming jobs and speaking confidently in front of people. I would like to thank Sharlene for being a great role model and teaching me to believe in myself during convention. It was truly a blast to represent Juneau County at the State Level!
     This opportunity to serve as the 2023 Juneau County Fairest of the fair has been a wonderful experience and a boost in my self-confidence. I would like to thank the Judges for selecting me to represent Juneau County and all the tasks that come with it. I would also like to thank Heidi Finucan and Abbie Erickson for coaching me along the way through everything. Thank you to my Junior Fairest, Emmelyn Lisi and Junior Attendant, Bailey Madden, for always being there, making new memories and supporting the Fair and its community together. Lastly I would like to thank my family as they are my number one supporters in everything I do. Erin Lund and Amy Lisi keeping us in line and one time to events and ultimately making this experience one of a kind. Without any of these people, my reign as Fairest would’ve been much harder.    As my year as Juneau County Fairest of the Fair comes to an end I would like to thank everyone I have met along the way for supporting me and our fair. I can’t wait to see what the next chapter of my life looks like. I also look forward to seeing what the future has in store for the Juneau County Fair and the Fairest of the Fair. I hope to see you at the 158th Juneau County Fair!
