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.
