Congratulations to Audra and Jeramiah. The Laura Ingalls Wilder Park & Museum in Burr Oak named Audra as Little Miss Laura and Jeramiah as Young Almanzo for the 2016-2017 year during the Laura Day celebration on June 25, 2016. These young people will represent the museum during the year at events, fundraisers, fairs and parades.


Candidates, ages 9-11, complete an application form, write an essay and return it to the museum address by early June. It is recommended the applicant lives within a reasonable driving distance to Burr Oak in order to appear in local parades and special museum events throughout the year. Applications and requirements will again be posted here in April of 2017.
