Meet the Junior Fairest of the Fair – BRIANN EAGEN
Briann is currently a member of the Sunrisers 4-H Club and has been involved with 4-H and the Fair for 10+ years.  She just completed her sophomore year at Berlin High School and is currently employed at Field Card and Gifts and also at Blue Star Stables. She hopes to someday become an OB/GYN or a Pharmacist. Briann says showing her pig at the fair is always important to her, because she likes to see how much better she can get every year. She also likes to learn about new things from other exhibitors. She remembers last year, that trying out for the Fairest of the Fair was a great experience and taught her a great deal!
