Tate will be the official ambassador for the fair, which takes place at the Antioch Fairgrounds from May 31 through June 3. She'll be helping out with kids' contests as well as making special appearances at community events and acting as spokesperson for the duration of her yearlong reign. In addition to her tiara, sash and cash award, she will receive a gift donated by the Antioch Lion's Club.
Tate is currently attending Los Medanos College, and plans to become a dental hygienist. She works two part-time jobs and is currently helping several 4-H and Grange members with their livestock projects for the fair. In her spare time she enjoys family, friends, motocross, camping and fishing.
Six young women competed for the title. The decision was based on an interview process by a panel of three judges that included Cristina Kelly, Contra Costa County Fair Board Member; Jeff Warrenburg, owner of Golf N Games; and Mary Ann Rhoe, general manager of the Comfort Suites in Oakley.
