Three Young Women Vying for the Wright County Fair Queen Title

The Wright County Fair

(Wright County, Iowa) - As the local 4-H and FFA members are making last-minute preparations for their exhibits for the Wright County Fair set for July 9th through 14th, the following three young women are preparing for the competition to be crowned the Wright County Fair Queen.


On July 9th, a committee of judges will carefully interview the ladies to select the royalty based on their traits, leadership, and citizenship contributions throughout the community. The Queen and Princess will reign throughout the fair while assisting with many fair activities. In addition, the Queen will represent Wright County in the Iowa State Fair Queen competition in August.


In addition to prizes from local businesses and a trip to the Iowa State Fair sponsored by the Wright County Fair Board, the Wright County Fair Queen will receive $550 from the Millie Knight Trust Fund. Meet the three youths vying for the titles of 2024 Wright County Fair Queen and Princess:


Ella Tew

Ella Tew just graduated from Clarion-Goldfield-Dows High School. Ella is the daughter of Andrew and Amanda Tew. Ella is involved in 4-H, FFA, Track, Dance, and Student Council.   Representing the Wright County Fair is important to Ella because she wants to show that even if the person is not involved in showing animals or farm life, they can still be a part of agriculture and the fair. Through FFA and 4-H, she has had opportunities to grow in leadership and civic duties, learn about agriculture, and experience it firsthand regardless of where she lives or what she chooses to do.




Jordyce Duncalf

Jordyce just finished her junior year at Clarion-Goldfield-Dows High School. Jordyce is the daughter of Ben and Marcy Duncalf.  Jordyce is involved in various extra-curricular activities in school, including the CDG dance team, golf, softball, basketball, TAG, Spanish Club, FFA National Honor Society, and Student Council.  Outside of school, she is part of the Dance with Me Studio competition dance team. Jordyce wants to represent the Wright County Fair and be a role model for younger students by showing them that if you keep a positive attitude and believe in yourself, you can achieve great things. Even if you don't succeed at something, trying never hurts because you will still grow and learn more about yourself.  



Belle Wharton

Belle Wharton just finished her junior year at Clarion-Goldfield-Dows High School. Belle is the daughter of Matthew and Angela Wharton.  Belle is involved in many activities, including being the Lake Clovers 4-H club president, attending Dance With Me Studio in Belmond, cheerleading, teaching a Sunday school class, student teaching with Mrs. Carpenter, FFA, Student Council, and 4-H. Belle wants to represent Wright County as Fair Queen because she enjoys meeting new people and spreading positivity and friendliness. Belle would also like to help with everything at the fair and interact with the public.




The Wright County Fair Board invites you to join them at the fair on Tuesday, July 9th, for the coronation of the fair queen following the parade. The parade begins on Broadway at 6 pm and ends at the fairgrounds. 


Following the parade, grab a seat at the Free Stage for an introduction of the Parade Grand Marshall, recognition of the 2024 scholarship recipients, the Annual Little Miss and Mr. contest, and the crowning of the 2024 Wright County Fair Queen and Princess.
