Meet the 2020 IOWA Teen Miss United States Agriculture Queen Diana Coral Davison from Allamakee County.
Davison is the daughter of Cindy Shogren and the granddaughter of Vernon and Janice Shogren of Waukon. She also is the daughter of Eric Davison and granddaughter of Don and Sharon Davison of Maquoketa.
She said she is proud of her connection to an Allamakee County Century Farm and Gruenwald farms in Jackson County.
Davison will represent Iowa at the national contest in Orlando, Florida, in June. Her platform is educating the American consumers for all phases of agriculture, from planting seeds to eating an apple.
Davison represented Allamakee County as the Teen Miss United States Agriculture Queen at the multi-state contest in Maryville, Missouri, in December 2019.
She was crowned at the Iowa State Fair for Allamakee County in August.
Competition states at the event held at the Mozingo Lake Resort in Maryville were representing Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. Davison won the “Overall Teen” title from the four states.
The Allamakee County teen won five of the seven competition categories including the State Fun Fashion as she wore authentic work clothes worn by Norbert Palmer from the Effigy Mounds National Monument Park located in her home county.
Davison presented the other contestants with the Iowa quarter featuring the Effigy Mounds.
Davison will inspire, “agvocate” and teach her passion for agriculture as she travels across Iowa and speaks at events.
Davison is a member and officer of the Little Switzerland FFA Chapter at Waukon High School and a 4-H member serving as president of her Clover Chasers Club.
She thanks her original sponsors, Wade Bucknell, an Allamakee Farm Bureau insurance agent, Freedom Bank Waukon, Bodensteiner John Deere Implement, and Micah Lynn Photography.
Davison will need sponsors to travel across Iowa and attend the national contest as she promotes all facets of agriculture.
Sponsorship donations can be sent to Davison at 516 Second St. NW, Waukon, Iowa 52172.
