Wyoming Queen Competes

I've passed hundreds of golf carts during my rounds throughout the events complex at the national high school finals rodeo each day this week, but the carts belonging to contestants competing for the Rodeo Queen crown standout a bit more than most, some are decorated with flowers,banners, a few even had flashing lights.

I caught up with The Wyoming Queen 17yr old Maggie Frederickson of Sheridan during an auction whose benefits went toward scholarships. Maggie is one of 42 girls competing at the competition from the United States, Canada, and Australia participating in many events. When asked how her nerves were doing between now and the crowning on Saturday, Fredrickson responded “ On a scale of 1-10, about a 9 right now.”
