Miss Boise College

Miss Boise College

AR 004638

The first “Miss Boise Junior College,” Ann McKibben, with her escort, Bob Hayes, receiving her crown from Vice President W. L. Gottenberg in 1964.

Miss Boise College, held between 1964 and the mid-1970s, was a beauty pageant for students. The event was sponsored by the Golden Z’s and the Inter-Collegiate Knights, two service organizations on campus. The winner would earn a scholarship of $250 and a spot in the Miss Idaho contest. Contestants were judged in three categories: evening gown, swimsuit, and talent. A “Miss Congeniality” would be selected by fellow contestants, and a smaller grant was available for the most talented woman. Once the competition was narrowed down to four finalists, the quality of their answers during the question round would determine the winner.
