Queen Tess at Border Days

Queen Tess Bowers
Tess BowersTess Bowers, the daughter of Norman and Diana Bowers, is a resident of Clarkston, WA. Tess attends Asotin High School as a sophomore. She has competed in shows all over the Northwest and has been involved in rodeo most of her life. Living in the northwest has put Tess in contact with many horsemen; she has taken advantage of their knowledge to produce well-trained horses that are a pleasure to ride at events and on the trail. Tess has a six year old Quarter Horse that she has trained personally and that she will be using throughout her reign as royalty. She has been active in the Asotin County Fair and Rodeo since she was nine years old and has shown horses and a steer at this event. Tess was also our 2015 Asotin County Fair and Rodeo Princess. She enjoys hunting, camping, fishing, being in the outdoors and spending her time with family and friends. As 2016 Asotin County Fair and Rodeo Queen, she looks forward to sharing her passion and love of rodeo with adults and children as she travels the northwest during her reign. Tess believes being Queen isn't just about crowns, glitter or pretty smiles. She believes it's setting good example; she wants to inspire children and adults. Tess would like to give an enormous thank you to her parents for their volunteer of time and support, her chaperones Whitney and Heidi for all the time they have put into helping us and for the time they will be putting into the events we attend. She would also like to thank the fair board and rodeo board for all the help and support they have given us. She would also like to give another enormous thank you to all the businesses that donated to the Royalty Coronation. Tess is excited to represent the 76th Annual Asotin County Fair and Rodeo.

2017 Chaperones

Hello! It is our pleasure to chaperone the Asotin County Fair and Hells Canyon Rodeo 2017 Royalty Court. We have enjoyed our time with Queen Tess Bowers.

We are very excited for the 76th annual fair and rodeo, and we invite you all to attend.

We have both been very involved in fairs, rodeos, and royalty for many years, and are excited to share this year with Tess. We will be very busy this summer representing our fair and rodeo at many other fairs, rodeos, and events. As we are both parents, we thoroughly enjoy watching Tess grow as an individual as well as a team and learning along the way. She has put in a lot of hard work already as well as her family and guardians who will be following her to royalty events.

We would like to thank Rogers Toyota for sponsoring us their truck to haul Tess and horse and other sponsors. We would also like to thank our families for supporting us and helping us during royalty events this year, and a special thanks for Moresa Graham for always being available to assist us and for sharing her vast knowledge with us.
