2022 Scholarship Pageant Application

Potential Contestant,

Thank you for your interest in the 2022 Benton Franklin Fair and Horse Heaven Round Up Rodeo Queen title. The Fair Board is pleased to be able to offer a $2,000 educational scholarship to the winner of this year’s pageant (upon successful completion of her year of reign), a trophy saddle, as well as many other gifts and awards.

The 2022 Queen will travel throughout the Pacific Northwest attending rodeos, parades, community events, civic luncheons and other royalty functions. It is a year of tremendous growth and endless possibilities. Our Queen will have an opportunity to make life-long friendships and memories.

I encourage anyone who is interested in competing, and their parent(s), to attend the Contestant Informational Night, on Monday, September 13, 6:00pm at the Carouse of Dreams. Bring your list of questions for us to answer, and hear from Queen Lexy Hibbs regarding her experience as the 2020-2021 Queen.

The Pageant competition will be conducted Friday, October 29 and Saturday, October 30, as you will note on the schedule included in the application packet (link provided below).Pageant workshops will be held prior to the competition, and each contestant is required to attend. If you are interested in competing for the title, be sure your calendar is free during those dates and times.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Benton Franklin Fair and Horse Heaven Round Up Rodeo, August 24-28, as we celebrate our 73rd Anniversary.

Toni Zunker
