The queen visited the Eagle 99.3 studios on Wednesday.
2014 Dearborn County 4-H Fair Queen Audrey Roth joined Bubba Bo on the Eagle 99.3 Morning show to discuss winning the pageant on Monday.
“I’ve worked at the food pantry. I’m going on a mission trip in Belize in July for a week,” Roth said.
Roth was second runner-up in the 2013 fair queen pageant, but decided to give it another try this year. It worked out.
Roth said her dream is to be on radio or work in news. A marketing career is also a possibility, she said.

(Dearborn County, Ind.) – At least two people will be seen wearing tiaras at the Dearborn County 4-H and Community Fair this week.
The Fair Queen Pageant was held on the fair’s opening night Monday. Ivy Tech Community College student and East Central High School graduate Audrey Roth was named the 4-H Fair Queen.
Carson Shipman was named first runner-up while Allison Hilton was second runner-up.
The fair continues through Saturday night. Tuesday’s events include the Cincinnati Zoo Birds at 6:00 p.m., the 4-H Swine Show at 7:00, and the Family Fun Night show at 7:30.
On Friday evening, reigning Indiana State Fair Queen Alyssa Garnett will attend the Dearborn County fair. She will visit the 4-H chicken dinner, Dearborn County Idol contest, and 4-H livestock sale.
Garnett is an FFA and 7-year 4-H alumnus who knows what it is like to be a county fair participant and queen. Garnett was crowned Miss Pulaski County before receiving the title of the 56th Indiana State Fair Queen at the 2013 state fair. She’ll spend her summer visiting 30 county fairs, festivals, and queen pageants.
“I’m so excited to meet fairgoers and visit the county,” said Garnett. “I’ve lived in Indiana my entire life, but never had the chance to see many of the counties I will be visiting throughout the summer.”
