A West Texas tradition of five decades, the selection of Miss West Texas Fair & Rodeo is based on horsemanship, appearance and personality competition.
There are six categories in the competition that are recognized, but only three are judged and scored with a point system. The three categories recognized but not voted on separately are Congeniality (voted on by the contestants, not the judges), their Speech (which is part of the overall Personality category) and Photogenic. The non-judges categories are recognized in order to give as many accolades as possible. The three categories that are judged are Horsemanship, Western Attire and Personality. The judges score these three categories and the young lady with the most points wins. The judges scores are given to a local public accounting firm for tabulation. The young lady with the most points in the three point judged categories is the winner. The results are then placed in a sealed envelope and given to our rodeo announcer. Join us as we find out who the Queen is during the first performance of the West Texas Fair PRCA Rodeo on Tuesday night of the fair.
During her reign, Miss West Texas Fair & Rodeo will travel all over the state encouraging Texas youth to remember the impact that our rich western heritage has had on the development of our state and to educate everyone about the contributions of Texas agriculture in our everyday lives.
