A blue ribbon winner at the Minnesota State Fair got a shoutout on social media from Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The actor/writer/composer/producer retweeted a picture of him as Hamilton made with seeds from the State Fair. The crop art was created by Linda Paulsen, of Hackensack.


"A Blue Ribbon at the Minnesota State Fair?! Linda Paulsen! Those are seeds?! You've outdone yourself!" Miranda wrote on Twitter.

KSTP talked to Paulsen earlier at the Fair when she was among a group of people honored for receiving 50-year awards.

At the time, she told KSTP, "I like competition, to talk to the artists and see what they've made. It's a fun time."

It appears she can now add one of her subjects to her list of fans.
