Lillie Curry of Mount Ayr was recently awarded the title of Ringgold County, Iowa Teen Miss United States Agriculture. Lillie is the daughter of Daniel and Kim Curry, and is an active 4-H member in her county. Because of 4-H she has found a passion for raising livestock, livestock judging and learning how to make and grow products to be self-sustainable. Through all of this, agriculture has become a large part of her life and Lillie wants to continue learning and sharing her passion.
Contestants will travel from all over the midwest to Maryville, Missouri the Nov. 21 weekend to compete for the honor to reign as a state Miss United States Agriculture Queen.
State Director Holly Hatfield says “The idea behind the Miss United States Agriculture Pageant Program is to celebrate the agriculture industry and our local farmers all while promoting self-esteem, building strong leaders and awarding scholarships to encourage a continuous pursuit of education. As well as utilizing our vision: An advocacy program for women to teach and enhance the American Agriculture story.”
