ESCANABA – A Princess and Queen have been crowned at the U.P. State Fair. Caitlyn Havelka of Wallace was crowned Queen. Madison Bagwell of Rock was crowned Princess.
Havelka, who was the princess in 2014, said part of their responsibilities will be doing community service projects.
“The Queen and Princess are actually required to do three different community service projects throughout their reign. Getting to be in the community and doing different events to promote the fair was just an amazing experience,” Havelka said about her reign as Princess.
Havelka shows dairy cows and pigs at the fair and competes in the Junior Horse Show.
Bagwell had the Grand Champion pig at last year’s fair. She thought that was an amazing experience.
“Last year I had the option to sell my Grand Champion market hog. I never sold my pig first so it was an amazing feeling. As soon as I was crowned Grand Champion, it was like butterflies. It was amazing,” remembered Bagwell.
Both had to submit a resume, autobiography and ethical dilemma report in order to run for Princess and Queen. They were crowned at at a special program last night at the beef arena.
