Fourteen girls from different areas represented their school and the dress was semi-formal. The girls were escorted by boys from Paintsville High School who drove their convertibles in the parade. The contestants rode through town to the courthouse where they were judged on poise, beauty, and personality.

At half- time of the Paintsville vs. Catlettsburg ball game, Miss Paula Wilson from Belfry High School was crowned Miss Big Sandy Bowl of 1967.
