Janelle is currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin – Madison where she is pursuing a degree in Human Development and Family Studies and earning a certificate in Global Health. She has been involved with her local 4-H club for 11 years, showing swine, sheep cultural arts, animal science and foods and nutrition. When asked what being Fairest of the Fair means to her she stated, “To be the Fairest of the Fair would be a great honor and would be the perfect way to conclude my years of showing at the Fair. I am able to act as a role model and advocate for all the youth that are seeking out their passions and a direction in life, as the Fair provides many great opportunities for exploration and personal growth. Being Fairest of the Fair provides me with personal opportunities for networking, revision, and learning but at a new level. Serving as the Fairest of the Fair, I would be able to have impactful interactions with Fair exhibitors, Fair goers, community members and leaders, and prospective families looking to be involved at the Fair in the future. I can then connect people to our Fair and to the community within our Fair, which can provide to everyone no matter their abilities, age, access needs or skill level. The community the Fair create is one that everyone has the chance to be a part of, and one that loves new members."
