2022 Queen Piper Schirm

Piper is the 22-year-old daughter of Don and Stephanie Schirm of West Richland. She is a graduate of Richland High School and a student at Columbia Basin College, where she is studying Project Management.

Her equestrian career began at the age of 12, when she started competing in 4-H. Piper was a member of the “Mighty Columbia” Washington State High School Equestrian Team for three years where she enjoyed being on the drill team and, recently, served as a member of the Horse Heaven Round-Up Wrangler Girls Drill Team.

As the ambassador for the 74th Benton Franklin Fair and Horse Heaven Round-Up Rodeo, Piper’s travels have taken her to events throughout the Pacific Northwest, where she has invited guests to our five-day fair and to experience one of the top 20 rodeos in the PRCA.

Queen Piper and her horse “B Sprite” look forward to seeing you August 23-27, 2022, in Kennewick, Washington, for the Best Week of Summer!
