She has volunteered at the Iowa State Fair, attended Iowa 4-H Legislative Day, and is a State Fair Buy-a-Brick” donor. She has attended the Iowa State 4-H annual conference four times in her high school career. She has exhibited champion projects and given educational presentations at the Iowa State Fair.
In the community she is an American Red Cross Life guard and swim instructor, American Heart Association volunteer and “Sweetheart” advocate, is an Akron Care Center Animal Visitation volunteer and volunteered with RAGBRAI. She is active with the Plymouth County Barn Quilts Project. Caine is the Children’s Bell Choir Assistant at her church.

In July Caine was chosen as the Plymouth County Fair Queen. She then went on to compete at the Iowa State Fair and on August 15th was chosen as the 2009 Iowa State Fair Queen competing with 103 other candidates.
Caine has a great personality and “shines” in everything she takes part in. She is an All-American girl who lives on a farm in northwest Iowa. She works hard and sets goals and achieves them with success. I got to know Caine through my volunteer work with 4-H in our county. I have watched her grow over these last 8 years and am proud to say she is from Plymouth County!”
