The only Teen Queen contestant this year is Kennedy Mertes, 13, of Kingman.

Winners will be crowned by the reigning 2020 Andy Devine Pro Rodeo Queen, 18-year-old Adison Leo. Leo will be attending Colorado State University in the fall to study Equine Science. “Representing my hometown rodeo has truly been a childhood dream come true,” Leo said. “Thank you all for this humbling experience.”
