In the final event of the day, Taylor McCreedy was selected as Runner Up in the Iowa State Fair Senior Cowgirl Queen contest. This was a great way for McCreedy to wrap up her week at the Iowa State Fair.

There were several FFA members that participated in the Parade of Champions on Saturday afternoon.

As we wrap up the first week of the Iowa State Fair, Atlantic FFA Advisor Eric Miller commented, “I am so proud of all of the FFA members that participated this week. I would like to thank all of the parents, friends, and family that helped with transportation, working with animals, and chores back home at the farm. Without everyone’s support, our FFA members would not have these opportunities.”

Next week Atlantic FFA members will participate in the Dairy Goat Show to wrap up the Iowa State Fair.
