The 54th Cowboy Homecoming Festival is only three weeks out, which means it’s time to cast your vote for the 54th Cowboy Homecoming Queen and her court.
For the past month, seven young ladies from Pleasanton High School – Claudia Acuff, Leanna Alcorta, Cali Evans, Jussiah Lopez, Brianna Ortiz, Whitney Rice and Chloe Rodriguez – have been campaigning for the chance to win the title of Cowboy Homecoming Queen. With only five slots up for grabs on the court, the competition is tough and these ladies need your support and vote this weekend.
Voting will take place Thursday-Saturday at the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce Log Cabin located at 605 2nd Street in Pleasanton. You can vote Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
To vote, you must have valid ID or proof you live in the Pleasanton ISD school district and be in ninth grade or older. Pleasanton ISD employees that live outside of the district can vote with a proper school ID. Students can vote at Pleasanton High School on Friday, August 30 during the A or B lunch periods.
