2017 Fairest of the Fair
Sarah Stock of Mukwonago
We are proud to announce that Sarah Stock of Mukwonago is our 2017 Fairest of the Fair. Sarah has shown horses and entered various projects at the Fair during her many years in 4-H, including cake decorating, knitting, woodworking, photography, and more. She spent four summers volunteering with Muckey 4-H and in the 4-H Dairy Bar and Food Stand at the Fair. She currently attends Carroll University where she will be a senior in the fall. After graduating, she plans to attend veterinary school to pursue small animal surgery. She also plans to continue pursuing the fine arts and volunteering in her community.
Sarah’s responsibilities as Fairest of the Fair include welcoming Fairgoers to the Fair, interviewing with the media, announcing special events, introducing entertainment, awarding ribbons, and representing Waukesha County in Wisconsin’s Fairest of the Fairs competition in January 2018. The Waukesha County Fair selects its Fairest of the Fair based on personality, appearance, poise, community involvement, and overall knowledge of the Fair. Contestants must live in Waukesha County or participate in a Waukesha County 4-H program. Sarah succeeds Talia Spiegelberg of Oconomowoc, our 2016 Fairest of the Fair, and will be awarded a scholarship at the end of her reign.1st Runner Up & Miss Congeniality Serena Nicoll
