With huge smiles and happiness, Colorado hosted their first state pageant. It may have been smaller than anticipated, due to Covid-19, but the contestants still had an outstanding time doing what they love - Advocating for Agriculture. Colorado has a diverse agricultural background from sheep, swine, and hay to vegetable crop like chilies.
At the pageant, 2020 Colorado Junior Miss United States Agriculture, Kelly Sloan and 2020 Colorado Miss United States Agriculture, Ryli West retired their crowns.
