The California Mid State fair has a new queen. Mikaila Ciampi of Paso Robles is the queen of the 2019 California Mid State Fair. Mikaila crowned Tuesday night at the fairgrounds. Ciampi was selected at a pageant held last night at the Frontier Stage. Mikaila will be a senior at Mission College Prep in Paso Robles. Ciampi has maintained a GPA of 4.24 at MCP. She also plays basketball and sings.
Her platform is titled “Autism: not a Disability, a Different Ability”. The intent is to educate young kids on how to understand and address their peers with autism.
