Fair officials are pleased to report that the newly-crowned New Mexico State Fair Queen for 2024 is Taylor White of Santa Fe County!
White is currently a student at the University of New Mexico where she's studying psychology and media communication with plans to become a clinical psychologist. In addition, she was the Rodeo de Santa Fe Queen in 2022, the Bernalillo County Queen in 2023 and has been named to the Dean's List at UNM twice.
"I am very excited to represent the New Mexico State Fair and embrace all of the cultures that New Mexico has to offer," said White. "As New Mexico State Fair Queen, my platform is going to be 'use what you got' because it doesn't matter where you come from or what you have, it's the effort that you put forward that will yield your results. Ultimately, there is no substitute for hard work, passion, tenacity or strength of character."
