The winners were selected by a panel of judges based on a review of their submitted paperwork, an interview, answering an on-stage question, attitude, the performance of a talent and a walk in a formal gown.
The other contestants were: Sammy Hansen, Sierra Leavitt, Mackenzie Toone, Autumn Wade, Jordan Waite, Kylee Wheeler and Alexandria Wood.
The new royalty serves as representatives for Grantsville for the next year and will participate in several community and other related events.
The pageant’s organization is a community-based volunteer effort that provides a $1,750 academic scholarship to the winner and a $750 scholarship to each attendant. The contestants, who range in age from 16-23, are required to submit a packet of paperwork, and must meet minimum GPA and other standards.
