The Ideal Western American Girl
Compete to represent the western way of life and promote the sport of rodeo at the 2022 Lincoln County Fair –Breanna Call
Do you love horses? Are you ambitious? Do you know rodeo life like the back of your hand? Then the Rodeo Queen Pageant is for you. The competition will be held Saturday, June 11, at 9:00 a.m. at the 4H exhibit building at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds.
There are three age categories: Queen (15—23), Princess (13—15), and Junior Princess (10—12). There are also three sections to the competition. The first is speech and interviews. Contestants will be expected to give a two-minute speech on “Rides, Ribbons, and Rodeo” or “A Cowgirl’s Best Friend.” Contestants will also be asked impromptu questions and then will be interviewed individually. The second section is modeling, where contestants will model for 60 seconds to music provided for them. The last category of the competition and the most important is horsemanship. Here, contestants will perform one reigning pattern, the flag presentation, and a queen salute.
According to the rules and regulations of the competition, “a rodeo queen symbolizes the youth of our state who wishes to further promote the sport of rodeo and the great western way of life. She is the ideal western American girl.”
The winners and their attendants will be expected to attend all days of the Lincoln County Fair, where they will help pass out prizes from other fair events. They will also be expected to attend night events during fair week and participate in parades and rodeos throughout the summer. Ashley Luthi, the Lincoln County rodeo queen coordinator also explains that “Our royalty is unique because the girls also get to present a flag routine before rodeos.”
