There’s new royalty in Jackson County.

“I’m feeling very excited right now. I did not see this coming, and I’m very thankful I got this opportunity.” That’s reaction from Katie Sedelbauer, who was crowned the 23-24 Miss Jackson County Tuesday night during the first event of this year’s Jackson County Fair.

Sedelbauer spoke about her hopes for the upcoming year, “I hope to impact as many younger kids as I possibly can. As well as older people, because I think it’s very important to have good role models in this community and county. Sedelbauer was also voted as Miss Congeniality by her peers.

Miss Jackson County’s court includes First Attendant Francesca Zentgraf and Second Attendant Ella Halverson, both of Taylor, and Noelle Bergerson of Melrose was named the Third Attendant.

The evening’s event also included the crowning of Jackson County’s Fairest of the Fair Jazmin Wagner of Melrose. Her attendant is Frannie Everson of Hixton. Wagner and Everson were also awarded 500 dollar scholarships from the Jackson County Ag Society.

The outgoing Miss Jackson County Mackenzie Dougherty was awarded the Kesley Jo Olson Memorial Scholarship. Chipper Wyss, of Black River Falls, was presented a plaque for her work on the Fair Board and Mary Cooley was recognized as this year’s Fair Book Dedicatee.

The new Miss Jackson County and Fairest of the Fair along with their courts get to work right away assisting with judging and events at Jackson County Fair, today through Sunday, in Black River Falls.
