Cheyenne Buyert, Miss Sheridan County, was crowned Miss Wyoming in the pageant Saturday night at Sheridan's WYO Theater.

Buyert said her selection came as a huge surprise.

Buyert's platform is “Winning with One.” In an interview with Sheridan Media earlier this year when she spoke to Sheridan's Rotary Club, she said the one refers to Type One diabetes. At the time she said she is a Type One diabetic, and she's trying to spread awareness and advocate for those who have the disease.

Also at Saturday's pageant, Amelia Beck Winter of Wheatland was crowned Miss Wyoming Outstanding Teen. Serene Billings, who's a co-executive director of the Miss Wyoming pageant, said the Miss Wyoming and Miss Wyoming Outstanding Teen pageants were combined because of the small numbers involved.

There were only three teen contestants and five Miss Wyoming contestants this year. But Billings said the numbers weren't the whole story.

The theme of this year's pageant was “Happily Ever After,” a tribute to the music of Walt Disney. The new Miss Wyoming and Miss Wyoming Outstanding Teen will represent the state in national competitions later this year.
