- Courtney Nichols, 2020 Queen
Hello my name is Courtney Nichols. I am 19 years old and I graduated from Dayville High
School last year. I currently live with my mom and step-dad, Kayce and Trevor Faulkner.
For the past two years I have proudly represented Grant County Fair and Rodeo, first as their
Princess in 2018 and last year as their Queen.
I have spent 10 years showing animals at County Fairs. I started raising and showing my own cows when I was in 2nd grade and have been a member of both
4H and FFA. Between showing at fair and living in the ranching lifestyle I have learned a lot; responsibility, time management, work ethic, patience, and leadership skills.
In high school, I played basketball, volleyball and participated in track, but rodeo has always been the sport I truly love. This fall I will be starting my second year of college at Treasure Valley Community College, where I am double majoring in Horse Production and Equine Business.
I look forward to representing the Harney County Fair and Rodeo, and our county’s ranching lifestyle. Due to current events I was not able to fully represent my title and was asked to continue my reign as the 2021 Harney County Fair and Rodeo Queen. I am looking forward to next year and being able to represent this great title.
