The Miss Montana and Miss Montana’s Outstanding Teen Scholarship Program competitions took place over three evenings in the Dawson County High School auditorium last week.

Above: Contestants showed off shoes they decorated to represent their personalities and interests. In the front row are two contestants from Glendive: Kristy Cullinan, left in the green shirt, and Kiera Melton, middle.

Right: Britta Brenna, a Miss Montana contestant from Glendive, demonstrates how to show a chicken, a skill she picked up during her many years involved in 4-H. Brenner had to use a stuffed chicken as live animals are not allowed on stage in Miss America-affiliated competitions.
