The Days of ’47 Royalty Pageant 2015
This year’s theme, “Pioneers - Forging a New Frontier” will be exemplified in the young women who participate in The Days of ’47 Royalty Pageant for 2015. These contestants, descendants of pioneers who arrived in the valley between 1847 and 1869, are pathfinders of today. They represent the high standards of modern-day pioneers with a love of their pioneer heritage and a vision of the difference young women can make in the world.
The pageant to select a queen and two attendants will be held on April 9, 10, 11, 2015, at the Conference Center Theater, located at 60 West North Temple in Salt Lake City. The Annie Taylor Hyde Award will also be presented to a young woman (chosen by her peers) for her consideration for others, congeniality, and modesty, among other traits. The application is available by clicking here
. Scholarship amounts from $500 to $3,000 will be awarded to the Royalty and the Annie Taylor Hyde award recipient
. The application deadline is April 1, 2015.
The pageant is produced by the International Society Daughters of Utah Pioneers. All young women who will be competing are between the ages of 19 and 25. The chosen royalty will ride in The Days of ’47 Parade, will be in attendance at many functions (such as The Days of ‘47 Rodeo), and will speak at numerous gatherings and events during the summer of 2015. They will be role models to all young women who hear their message as they represent the state of Utah, The Days of ’47, and Daughters of Utah Pioneers.
The day of the pageant is exciting! We encourage DUP camps and companies to support an eligible young woman by suggesting that she participate, by holding a mock interview with her, and by DUP daughters coming to the pageant. We invite all DUP members as well as friends and family to attend.
