JUNCTION – New royalty was crowned at the Miss Piute Scholarship Pageant as part of the Piute County Fair Butch Cassidy Days festivities, June 11. 

Due to COVID-19 and social distancing, the format of the pageant was somewhat different than in years past.

Tyree King, Miss Piute; Abby Morgan, first attendant; and Brinnly Miramontes, second attendant. 

The Miss Piute Teen winners were – Emma Jensen, Miss Piute Teen; Stormee Barnson, first attendant; and Miriam Thomas, second attendant.

The Miss Piute Junior royalty inludes – Whitlee Westwood, Miss Piute Junior; Avery Morgan, first attendant; Lilly Nowers, second attendant. Other royalty included Honour Whittaker, Avery Whittaker and Katherine Thomas.
