Miss SD State Fair Scholarship Competition

Reigning Miss SD State Fair Amber Hulse

Amber Hulse grew up on a hunting camp in West River South Dakota. She is a sophomore at the University of South Dakota, working to earn her Bachelor of Science for Political Science with a minor in Civic Leadership Studies. She hopes to pursue further education after receiving her degree at USD by attending Law School and earning a Juris Doctorate. One day, Amber hopes to represent South Dakota in Washington D.C. as a member of Congress. Her platform is Operation Overload: A Confidential College Briefing, where she helps youth through the college application process helping students meet their full potential and realize opportunities that are out there for further education and career planning. She is very excited for some of the projects she is planning with her platform this year and to wear the title of Miss State Fair as she travels the state promoting further education.

Reigning Miss SD State Fair Outstanding Teen Anna Calhoon


Anna Calhoon was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She grew up all around the US, all the way from New York To Colorado with several places in between. She grew up as a military child so she has been to a vast majority of the states. Anna is excited to be your Miss State Fair Outstanding Teen and compete to be Miss South Dakota Outstanding Teen. Her favorite thing about the fair is riding the Ferris wheel after dusk, seeing the midway light up brightly. Her platform is Project Blue Light, which is an organization that keeps the memory of fallen officers alive. Her uncle, Chad Mechels, was a police officer that was killed in the line of duty, so this is near and dear to her heart.
