Iowa has a new Pork Queen.
Leah Marek of Riverside was crowned queen at the Iowa Pork Congress on Tuesday night. Paige Dagel of Sanborn and Reagan Gibson of Panora were named the two Iowa Premier Pork Youth Ambassadors.
They were among eleven contestants, including Macy Loecke of Manchester, Emily Wulfekuhle of Petersburg and Adele Hogan of Monticello (pictured below with their parents).
The Iowa Pork Queen and Premier Pork Youth Ambassadors each received a $4,000 scholarship and will help the Iowa Pork Producers Association promote pork throughout the state this year.
