Pageant and Royalty



A little about the contest

This is a Pageant done the Stock Show way! It isn't about who is the prettiest dressed or has the sassy walk. It is about who (guys and gals) that represents the stock show life and can advocate for the Harris County Fair with the most dignity and determination. It is a contest to select the Fair Royalty representing the youth of the Harris County Fair and Rodeo! Not only will the winners attend the Harris County Fair and Rodeo at the Fair but they will have the opportunity to represent the Fair throughout their reign in other public events. We expect to be promoting the Fair through out the year with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Parades in Houston, news stations, Make A Wish foundation, and other fund raisers.

Age divisions are listed below and contestants can also enter other categories including: Best Smile, Best Hair, Best Outfit, Best Resume (Highschool), Best Photography and Top Hand (most sponsored contestant). Be sure to check out the rules to learn more! King, Queen, and Top Hand (Top Hand new for 2023 depending on the funds raised) are eligible for scholarships!
