The Mid-Prairie FFA chapter president has another title to hold this year as the 2021 Washington County Fair Queen.
Carmen Sieren of the Dutch Creek Flyers 4-H Club was named queen in Sunday night’s pageant, and this year she showed a sheep and several communication and static projects. For her queen duties, Sieren has spent the week handing out ribbons at other livestock shows, assisting at the Clover Kids pet show, and participating in several kids events at the Lion’s Club stage including the oreo stacking and frog jumping contests. Sieren describes a highlight of this year’s fair, “Probably my favorite moment is getting to hand out ribbons at the sheep show, just because I know a lot of those kids personally and it’s a lot of fun for me to be able to see them succeed. Because a lot of times when I’m actually showing I have to stand in the back of the barn and get my sheep ready, so it was really nice to be able to see everyone and hand them the ribbons since those are people that I kind of connect with.”
The Washington County Fair wraps up tomorrow with the livestock auction, horseshoe pitching tournament, motocross at the grandstand, followed by fireworks and live music. KCII continues to broadcast live from the Washington County Fair, and you can hear more from Sieren during today’s Halcyon House Washington Page on air and at kciiradio.com.
