Ozaukee County Fair Contests

Boehlke CROWING sm

Meet our 2018 Fairest of the Fair, Sharla Boehlke!

Sharla Boehlke, from Random Lake, is 19 years old and a sophomore at UW-Madison studying Dietetics. She works in the State 4-H office as a Wisconsin 4-H International Program Assistant.

She is an 11-year member of Little Kohler 4-H Club. Her projects have ranged from ceramics to leathercraft. She has participated in the volleyball and softball tournaments, summer camp, Variety Show, State Drama Company, Youth Conference and more. At the Fair, she loves participating in auctioneering, photography, and foods & nutrition, and showing her steers. (Shar has shown beef for 12 years and pigs for 10.)

Last summer, she spent four weeks in Norway on a 4-H exchange. This summer, she hosted her Norwegian host sister and a Japanese chaperone through the Inbound Program.

During the summers, Sharla works on her family farm, hangs out with friends, and gets ready for the county and state fairs. Friends and family would describe her as a fun-loving girl who loves life and knows how to make people smile.

Sharla enjoys public speaking and is excited to grow through this experience as 2018 Ozaukee County Fairest of the Fair.
