Dedication to the community as earned 18-year-old Cara Wiffen the Alexandra Blossom Festival's most sort-after title after she was named at the Queen of this year's festival at the weekend. 

Miss Wiffen, who is the Alexandra Youth Forum chairwoman, said she was surprised to be awarded the title from the nine other hopefuls for this year's event.

The judges said Miss Wiffen's involvement in the community made her the clear winner.

She said she decided to enter as a princess because she wanted to give back to the community and become more involved in the festival.

''It was really great getting to know everyone involved,'' Miss Wiffen said. 

She has been living in Central Otago since she was three years old and enjoys photography.

Princesses Mel Gaul and Sarah Hesson were named first runner-up and second runner-up.
