At the Iowa State Fair, you can take home a ribbon for screaming at your husband.

At this year's Husband-Calling Contest, 65-year-old Rose Beauregard put her hands around her mouth, creating a megaphone, and yelled her husband's name, turning it into a very long two syllables. "Cliffffffff-orrrrd!"

Rose said she's been practicing with Clifford, and while out with her camping club, with whom she can really let loose in the great outdoors and scream her head off.

She only wanted to win once. "The older I get, the harder it is to take that deep breath," she told Radio Iowa.
