In an emotional farewell speech, the reigning Miss Colusa County, Kendall Cotter, passed on her title.

“This year has gone by fast, and I had the privileged opportunity to represent our county at other fair gatherings, and community events,” said Cotter in her farewell speech, “I am grateful to have my new little sister, Mini Miss Colusa County, Abigail Husky – you’ve taught me a lot.”

Cotter also went on thanking each of the special individuals in her life that have made her year as Miss Colusa County a success.

The evening started off with a very special performance of the Star Spangled Banner by 9-year-old Karsyn Gwinnup of Maxwell. Karsyn sang our nation’s patriotic song with pride and grace, delighting the crowd, receiving a standing ovation.

This year, six candidates were vying for the crown. However, unlike some pageants, the Miss Colusa County Pageant is not simply a beauty contest, but rather, a scholarship pageant. Contestants are judged not only on beauty of face and figure, but also on communication skills, visual poise, academic achievements, extra-curricular activities, and community involvement.

The 2014 Miss Colusa County title was crowned to Ms. Kendra Hester, 16 of Colusa. Kendra is the daughter of Kenneth and Ellen Hester. Kendra is also the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship and plans to get her Ph.D. with a specialty in Eating Disorders.

The first runner-up, and the recipient of Miss Congeniality was awarded to Ms. Allison Ward, 17 of Williams. Allison is the daughter of Brent and Kristi Ward. Allison is a recipient of a $500 scholarship and plans to Oregon State and major in Animal Science.

From as far as Florida, over 20 former Miss Colusa County alumni returned to the stage to celebrate the Colusa County Fair’s 75th year.

From 1963 to 2013, former title holders wore their crowns and sashes one more time, giving their well wishes to the contestants.

The 2014 Miss Colusa County participants also included: Anel Sanchez, 16 of Colusa. Anel is the daughter of Daniel and Jakie Sanchez; Michaela Carvalho, 17 of Maxwell. Michaela is the daughter of David and Mary Carvalho; Emily Corriea, 17 of Colusa, Emily is the daughter of Tom and Jennifer Corriea; and Anastasia Azevedo, 17 of Maxwell. Anastasia is the daughter of Michael and Becky Azevedo.

The crowning of Miss Colusa for 2014 kicks off the 75th Annual Colusa County Fair!
