The 6th annual Sweet Corn Princess Contest was held on Friday, Aug. 9.


The contest featured 37 ADM second, third and fourth grade competing for the crown. Emcee Matt Ireland asked the girls questions during the contest. The princess and three runners-up were then chosen by a random drawing.


The Sweet Corn Princess is ADM second-grader Harper Whittlesey. The first, second and third runners-up, respectively, are Sophia Karwal, Emma Delp and Norah Morain.


The 2019 Sweet Corn Princess and runners-up, along with all of the contestants, got the chance to ride in the Adel Sweet Corn Festival parade on Saturday, Aug. 10.
