Yuma County Fair Queen and Lady in Waiting

The 2019 Yuma County Fair & Rodeo Queen is, Jacy Archer. She is the daughter of John Archer and will graduate Wray High School, May 2019. Jacy is active in many clubs including FBLA, FCCLA, FFA, W.I.N.G.S, Peer Counseling, Softball, NHS and Rho KAPPA. Jacy loves volunteering her time with her community for whomever needs help. Jacy will be attending Fort Hays State University, working to receive her Bachelor of Science in pre-Chiropractic. Jacy’s dream is to one day run and own her own human and animal chiropractic business.

The Lady-in-Waiting is Morgan Jones. Morgan is the daughter of Josh & Heather Jones and will be a senior in High School. Moran enjoys decorating cakes, working with cattle, and riding horses. When Morgan graduates high school, she plans to attend college to be a cosmetologist. She loves to help people feel good about themselves.

The Yuma County Fair & Rodeo Royalty program is sponsored by the Yuma County Commissioners and the Yuma County Cattleman’s Association. The Yuma County Fair and Rodeo Queen (YCFRQ) is the ideal western American young woman. She symbolizes the youth of Yuma County who wish to promote Yuma County, Yuma County agriculture, and the sport of rodeo.

The committee hosts a contest annually to choose one young woman to become the new Lady-in-Waiting, and this person will then become Queen the following year. The contest is held immediately prior to the fair, with the contest being judged on: Speech & Interview 40%, Horsemanship 30%, Poise & Personality 20%, and Application/Essay/Recommendations 10%. Any unmarried women living in Yuma County, being 16-23 years old on the day of the contest, can run from the position. Any questions concerning the program, Lady-in-Waiting contest, or volunteering can contact the committee Michelle Smith 970-630-5868 or yumacountyfairqueen@gmail.com, you may also ask at the extension office for more contact information.
