The Miss Sanpete County Board has announced its upcoming competition at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6, in the Eccles Center for the Performing Arts, 300 E. Center, Ephraim.

Tickets will be available at the door, which will open at 6 p.m. Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for children ages 4 to 11. Adult tickets will receive one program; additional programs will be available for $3 each.

Our very own Miss Utah 2008 and Miss Sanpete County 2007 Kayla Barclay Hall will be the host for the evening.

Miss Sanpete County

The Miss Sanpete County Scholarship Competition emphasizes the importance of education, scholarship and community service.

The new Miss Sanpete County will receive a $3,000 scholarship and will have the opportunity to spend the next year serving the communities of Sanpete County and also implement her chosen platform, which is an issue or position for which she wishes to advocate and bring awareness.

Candidates seeking to be chosen as the new Miss Sanpete County will compete in the following categories: Interview, Talent, Evening Wear and On-Stage Interview.

Ashtyn Childs of Centerfield has served as Miss Sanpete County 2022. She is a Snow College graduate and a licensed nail technician and is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education at Western Governors University. She competed at the Miss Utah competition in June where she received the prestigious Non-Finalist Private Interview Award and a $200 scholarship.

Ashtyn’s most memorable event was helping at the Sanpete County Fair. “I was able to meet so many incredible people throughout the county and it was the perfect way to start my year as Miss Sanpete County,” she said.

Ashtyn has spent her year of service focusing on her Social Impact Initiative “Be Uniquely You,” which focuses on celebrating and accepting traits and characteristics that make each person unique and different.

Miss Sanpete County’s Outstanding Teen

The Miss Sanpete County’s Outstanding Teen program is an extension of the Miss Sanpete County scholarship program. The program has grown over the years and is an opportunity for girls ages 12 to 17 to showcase themselves and their unique talents.

Young ladies seeking to be chosen as the new Miss Teen Sanpete work hard to challenge themselves in the areas of Private Interview, Talent, Evening Wear and On-Stage Interview.

Each contestant will also have a developed platform or service project to implement throughout her year of service. The new Miss Teen Sanpete will receive a $1,500 cash award.

Lakely Brotherson of Wales has served as Miss Sanpete County’s Outstanding Teen 2022. She competed at Miss Utah’s Outstanding Teen competition in February 2022 where she was awarded 4th Runner Up and was also a recipient of the Fitness Preliminary Award. She will be a senior at North Sanpete High School.

Lakely’s most memorable moment was assisting at the Princess Camp at the Ephraim City Library and teaching young girls how to value themselves. Another highlight was assisting at the motocross event during the Sanpete County Fair.

Lakely’s platform, “Give to Live,” raises awareness of the importance of organ and tissue donation.
