HURON — While the cowboys and cowgirls were ridin’, ropin’ and more at last weekend’s 2023 Heartland 4-H Rodeo, another competition was taking place out of the ring - the annual Ambassadors contest for young cowgirls.

The pair received their titles from 2022 Ambassadors Victoriah Buffington and Ramsey Fouberg.
