This scholarship pageant is held annually to showcase and honor young ladies who have the maturity, talent, desire, and enthusiasm to compete for the title of Benton Franklin Fair & Horse Heaven Round Up Rodeo Queen.
While there are several categories in which we will present awards to the individual winners (horsemanship, interview, speech, and photogenic) there will only be one titleholder crowned at the conclusion of the pageant. The titleholder will be awarded a trophy saddle, as well as many other gifts and awards. Selected clothing and accessories to be worn during the year of reign will also be provided.
For the 2018 Queen it will be an amazing year of community events, public speaking, parades, luncheons, and rodeos all while serving as a goodwill ambassador for the Fair and Rodeo. And upon successful completion of her year of reign she will receive a $1,500 scholarship to be used towards her continuing education as approved by the Benton Franklin Fair Board.
This year's pageant will take place at the Three Rivers Convention Center on Saturday, October 21, 2017, starting with Social Hour at 5:00pm followed by Dinner and Program at 6:00pm. Cost is $35.00/person. Tickets will be available for purchase September 25.
Further information regarding contestant eligibility, pageant rules & expectations, pageant schedule, etc. can be found on the 2018 Scholarship Application Packet listed below.
