Who will be the next Eagle Butte Snow Queen? That question will be answered this Saturday at the 2015 Eagle Butte Snow Queen Festival. The festival will be held at the Cheyenne-Eagle Butte Auditorium beginning at 7:00 pm. This year there will be six local ladies competing for the Senior Snow Queen title. The newly crowned queen will go on to compete at the State Snow Queen in Aberdeen on January 8-16, 2016.
Five awesome young ladies have stepped forward to compete in the Eagle Butte Junior Snow Queen. This is will be the first time a junior queen will be crowned. The winner will also represent Eagle Butte at the South Dakota Junior Snow Queen held in January at Aberdeen.
We have 10 girls in the 2015 Little Miss Snow Princess contest. These Little Miss contestants’ cans are available at the State Bank of Eagle Butte. Members of the public can stop in and vote for their favorite young lady until 1:00 pm on Wednesday. You can vote on November 28 as well at the Snow Queen Festival. One penny equals one vote. Any U.S. coins or bills can be placed in the cans to vote.
In the talent competition, there is one entry in the senior division and eight entries in the Junior Division. The winner of the each contest will also go to the State Snow Queen Festival in Aberdeen on January 9, 2015. The senior division contestant is Dylan Lemmon. Junior contestants are Betti Jai Rose Lawrence, Charly Tess Etzkorn, Lourdes Raime Dupris, Daci Lends His Horse, Tina Shields, Angel White Mountain, and Shanity White Mountain.
