A Day in the Life of Miss McKenzie County, Iida Lehto


I consider a lot of the people in my life as family. From my amazing friends to my supportive co-workers, they all hold a special place in my heart.  I have one brother, Jonah, who inspires me to be the best possible version of myself I can be. Family is very important to me and I have them to thank for all of my successes.



A big part of my life, as well as a big part of being Miss North Dakota, is volunteering. In the summertime, I go to a camp known as Camp ReCreation where I help those who have disabilities. It ties into my platform, “Raising Awareness for Individuals with Disabilities”.


Laughter & Smiles

With everything that goes on day-to-day whether it be your daily dose of bad luck or winning the lottery, I always remember to laugh and smile; laugh and learn from your mistakes; smile through the bad times; be grateful for everything you have; living life by never taking anything for granted. In some of these cases, you can capture one of these amazing times of laughter like the picture to the right where my friends and I had fun on a cloudy day by making the day a lot more colorful!
