The Ravalli County Rodeo Queen contest was held Saturday at the Fairgrounds. Contestants competed for a chance to wear the sash and crown as the queen, Rodeo Princess or Little Miss Ravalli County Rodeo. The contestants had to ride in the horsemanship portion of the contest. They were also interviewed and answered questions about the sport of rodeo and the western way of life.
