Miss Riverton Scholarship CompetitionAbout the Competition
The Miss Riverton Scholarship Competition is open to young women age 18-28 (as of June 2025) who are Riverton residents. The competition is held in the spring of each year. The competition process teaches young women valuable life skills such as public speaking, vocabulary, poise, strength, knowledge and voice in political and current events, and helps each candidate discover her core values. At the end of the competition, a new Miss Riverton is crowned, along with 1st and 2nd attendants.

New Talent Option for 2024:
A new judging process offers contestants the opportunity to replace the traditional talent with "HERStory," a 90-Secondary Story contestants tell to inspire, captivate, and entertain on stage. Those who plan to participate in the traditional talent may be joined by one partner for talents such as ballroom dance and cheer.
