The girls loved this fun bonding experience and showing their red, white, and blue pride....but most importantly taking part in such a monumental occasion!

Utah NAM queens featured and interviewed on local Fox nightly news

Our Miss Utah royalty has been SUPER busy avidly working at the Utah State Fair...even getting dirty and doing thinks they probably never thought they would do....like judging the goat contest (LOL!!!). Because they have been so active with the fair and such a iconic staple for attendees....they were even featured and interviewed on the local FOX nightly news!!! Check out this FUNNY interview as they are asked what they look for in a good goat.....sooo funny and the girls were such great sports!

Miss Wisconsin Princess, Shelby Hohneke, shows us how to make giving back super fun!

Newly crowned Miss Wisconsin Princess, Shelby Hohneke believes that no child should ever go hungry. Not only does this spunky girl donate money to Feed my Starving Children, but also trades in her newly earned tiara for a hair-net, dedicating 1 day a month to the organization, packaging meals to those in need! However, to make giving back fun, she hosts "meal packing parties" and brings along her friends and family. What a super fun way to dedicate your time!
