County’s Miss Agriculture plans to share about farming industry

Olivia Clester, of South Williamsport, was recently named the 2020 Lycoming County Junior Miss Agriculture USA, a non-profit agriculture promotion organization featuring queens of all ages that promote, celebrate and educate about the diverse aspects of agriculture, all over the country.

Clester was drawn to the competition because of her desire to make a difference in our society. She hopes to be able to learn and share her agriculture knowledge throughout the year while visiting local and state businesses, participating in local and state events, speaking with those who support the agricultural community.

She wants to use the platform to be a voice for the farming industry.

Clester is a 12-year-old student at Sugar Valley Rural Charter School. She will be competing at the State and National Miss Agriculture USA Queen competition in 2020.

Olivia’s agricultural interests include gardening, horses, market goats and market chickens. She is a member of the Sugar Valley Ag 4-H, serving as the historian. She is also involved in Girl Scouts, FFA, Enviro-thon, reading competition, band, chorus and competition baton twirling, with ‘M’ Twirling Team out of State College.
