Meet your 2017-2018 Elmore County Fair & Rodeo Royalty

Elmore County Fair and Rodeo Senior Queen

Bridget is the 22 year old daughter of Chris and Dixie Black. She is from Bruneau, ID and is currently working as a dental assistant at Today’s Dental Care Wendell. She is also going to school at CSI for Agribuisness. Bridget grew up on her dad’s ranch learning to rope, ride and work cattle. She had always wanted to be a rodeo queen, but thought it wasn’t possible. She is happy to share with all young girls aspiring to be queens that they can do anything they set their minds to.

Bridget has had a great year representing Elmore County by attending rodeos and parades such as Bruneau rodeo and the AFAD parade in Mountain home. It has been my great pleasure representing Elmore County as the 2017-2018 Senior Queen.

Elmore County Fair and Rodeo Junior Queen

My name is Mikiah Stanger and I have been proud to be able to represent the Elmore County Fair and Rodeo by being 2017-2018 Junior Queen. This year I have been happy to ride in the AFAD and the Boise Holiday Parade where we won awards for representation. I also have been excited to buzz in numerous local rodeos throughout the valley with my last at the Idaho Horse Expo. My hobbies include swimming, rafting, camping, and of course rodeo. I couldn’t have asked for a better rodeo to represent for my first title and I thank the fair board for allowing me such a wonderful opportunity!
