Two local teens are vying for a spot on the Iowa Pork Youth Leadership Team.
Former Delaware County Pork Queen Brooke Wilson of Delhi is among the seven contestants, along with Caleb Hogan of Monticello, who is representing Jones County. Youth from the counties of Benton, Story, Washington, Plymouth and Buena Vista are also in the competition.
Among the seven contestants, three will be chosen to represent Iowa in the promotion of pork over the next year – one will be crowned the Iowa Pork Queen, with two others named Iowa Pork Youth Ambassador.
The winners will be named tonight at the Iowa Pork Congress banquet in Des Moines. The Iowa Environmental Steward and the 77th class of Iowa Master Pork Producers will also be recognized.
