Humboldt County Fair Queen Kate Curran was named as 1st runnerup at the Iowa State Fair Queen Contest on Saturday night.
“I was shocked. I was not expecting that at all,” Curran said.
Ironically, Curran was roommates with Jacqueline Ehrlich of Dubuque County, who was named Iowa State Fair Queen.
“When I first met her I could tell right away she was going to be the queen,” Curran said.
As 1st runnerup, Curran receives a $1,500 scholarship from the Iowa State Fair, plus a $300 gift card to Jordan Creek Mall.
