April 10, 11, 12 -- Days of '47 Royalty Pageant at the LDS Conference Center Theater in Salt Lake City
The Days of ’47 Royalty Pageant 2014
This year’s theme, “Pioneers - Pushing Toward Our Future” will be exemplified in the young women who participate in The Days of ’47 Royalty Pageant for 2014. 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 10, 11, 12, 2014, 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
. The application deadline is April 1, 2014.
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 2014. 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.

DAYS OF 47 ROYALTY ANNOUNCED FOR 2013
Royalty for the 2013 Days of ’47, Inc. celebration has been named to reign over this year’s events and activities.
The Queen is Malissa Richardson, daughter of Trent and Lorilee Richardson of South Jordan, Utah. First Attendant is Chelsea Alley from Bountiful, Utah, daughter of John and Cori Alley. Second Attendant is Lizzy Davis, daughter of Richard and Wendy Davis, from Salt Lake City, Utah. The trio was selected during a pageant held April 13 at the LDS Conference Center Little Theater. They were selected by a panel of judges based on talks centered on this year’s theme, “Pioneers – Our Anchor for the Future,” their goals, accomplishments, poise, leadership, answers to judge’s questions, and family genealogy with pioneers who came to the Salt Lake Valley between 1847 and 1869.
As they travel and speak this summer, our Royalty will be an example to all young women who hear their message. They will represent The Days of ’47 and International Society Daughters of Utah Pioneers well. The highlight of the summer’s events is The Days of ’47, Inc. KSL 5 parade. More information is available at www.daysof47.com
Annie Banks Kirkpatrick, daughter of Stewart and Kelly Kirkpatrick, from Billings, Montana, received the Annie Taylor Hyde Award for her friendship and kindness.
