Schalesky started competing in princess competitions when she was 5 years old. Her mom was a rodeo queen back in the 1980s, so it was almost a family tradition as her sister also competed alongside her.

This past year as Miss Black Hills Stock Show Queen has been pretty busy. Schalesky said she put around 15,000 miles on her car for how much traveling she's done around the state and region.

The 2020 Miss Black Hills Stock Show Queen contest is Saturday, February 1. It starts with horsemanship at 8 a.m. and ends with the crowning during the Stockman's Banquet & Ball around 7 p.m. The public is allowed to attend all events except for the interview with judges mid-morning.
