Dusti Olson, a Kuna High Graduate and the current Caldwell Night Rodeo Queen, is taking her title to compete in the Miss Rodeo Idaho Pageant at the Snake River Stampede Rodeo. In the pageant contestants compete in a series of judged events, including private and on-stage interviews, horsemanship, public speaking and modeling. Contestants for the Miss Rodeo Idaho Pageant must be holding a current rodeo queen title from another rodeo in Idaho.
This year the Miss Rodeo Idaho Pageant hosted the modeling portion of the competition with a fashion show at Boise Towne Square Mall on Monday, July 15. The Miss Rodeo Idaho Fashion Show requires the contestants to wear a new fashion forward outfit wearing the latest trends, and to wear a traditional rodeo queen dress. The rodeo queen competition is a weeklong pageant with the winner announced at the Snake River Stampede for the Cure Night on Wednesday, July 17.
Lauren Johnson will be competing for the Caldwell Night Rodeo Queen later this summer.
