The Faces of 2017

Royalty for 2017 Days of ’47 were crowned Saturday, April 22, 2017.  
The pageant featured 21 contestants from Idaho and many areas of Utah.  



The queen is Maren Cline, the daughter of Russ and Melou Cline of North Salt Lake.  She is an accomplished harpist and pianist, and is classically trained in opera.  







The First attendant is Tess Hanson, daughter of Karl and Tammy Hanson of South Jordan.  She was a Bingham High School class officer in student government for two years and has had musical training in drums, guitar, violin and voice.  


The Second attendant is Brittny Millington, daughter of Aaron and Laura Millington of South Jordan, who served as a member of the South Jordan Youth Executive Council, and volunteered with the Brain Injury Alliance of Utah and with the Intermountain Healthcare Traumatic Brain injury support group. 



The recipient of the coveted Annie Taylor Hyde Award is Elizabeth Aust, daughter of David and Mary Aust of Rexburg, Idaho, who is a songwriter and vocal performance Sterling Scholar.  She was selected by a majority vote of the other contestants. 






The Royalty was chosen during a pageant held April 22nd at the LDS Conference Center. They were selected by a panel of judges based on talks centered on this year’s theme, “Pioneers Visions of a New Horizon!” Their goals, accomplishments, poise, leadership, answers to judges’ questions, and family genealogy with pioneers who came to the Salt Lake Valley between 1847 and May 10, 1869 were other qualifications. As they travel and speak this summer, our Royalty will be an example to young women who hear their message. They will represent the Days of ’47 and International Society Daughters of Utah Pioneers.  Numerous Days of ’47 events occur during July. Go to www.daysof47.com for dates and locations. The Days of ’47 Royalty will attend all of these activities. They are available for appearances and speaking engagements.
