The four young women came to vie for the title of Miss San Juan on Thursday, May 1.
The contestants were judged based on a private interview, evening wear, onstage questions, and talent.
They will be featured in both the July 4 and Pioneer Day parades, as well as at the San Juan County Fair in August.
Participation in the pageant has continually decreased, which means this could be the last year for Miss San Juan.
