Miss Rodeo Idaho Inc. President Sheri Arkoosh released this statement regarding the error:
“There has never been a question of honesty with this pageant and that cannot change today. For the trust of this year’s competitors and any in the future, the error must be rectified. We regret the error was undetected until after the incorrect results were announced. The scores in one category were inadvertently duplicated, leading to a shift in the overall winners. The error was caught in post event record keeping that is routine with each pageant. We sincerely apologize for this regrettable situation and the distress it has caused.”
