We were thrilled when Tarter Farm & Ranch Equipment from Dunnville, Kentucky, asked Blinged Up to make custom rhinestone shirts for all of the Miss Rodeo America contestants to wear at their recent Miss Rodeo America Pageant in Las Vegas.
Tarter is a sponsor of Miss Rodeo America and requested the Blinged Up shirts for all of the pageant’s contestants. We would like to thank Tarter for this very fun order and for allowing us to be a part of the Miss Rodeo America Pageant.
From the About Us page of the Miss Rodeo America website:
The Miss Rodeo America organization and pageant competition exists for the purposes of selecting a young lady to serve as an official spokesperson for the sport of professional rodeo and providing educational opportunities for those young women who compete in the pageant.
Miss Rodeo America travels some 100,000 miles during the year of her reign, appearing at nearly 100 rodeo performances, as well as appearances at schools, civic groups and other special events, educating the public and creating awareness about the sport of rodeo, its sponsors, and its opportunities.
Talented, beautiful, and well-spoken, Miss Rodeo America is the ideal ambassador to represent and promote America’s Original Professional Sport – rodeo – serving as the official spokesperson for the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. She also takes on the role of model and spokesperson in a variety of promotional events and commercial advertisements for western clothiers, publications, sponsors and other service providers to the western industry.
We encourage you to come out and meet Miss Rodeo America when she makes an appearance at a rodeo or event near you and join Miss Rodeo America in supporting the great western rodeo tradition.
The annual Miss Rodeo America Pageant hosts beautiful and talented cowgirls from across the country. These hopefuls – having already spent a year as reigning queen for their representative states – converge for a weeklong competition in late November/early December to select one deserving young woman to reign as Miss Rodeo America for the coming year.
These energetic cowgirls are judged in the major categories of personality, appearance, horsemanship and rodeo knowledge & presentation, demonstrating her skills in public speaking, personal interviewing, horsemanship, knowledge of rodeo and general equine science, current event awareness, photogenic qualities, visual poise, and overall professionalism.
The pageant is a glamorous prelude to the famous Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, the PRCA’s year-end championship event also held in Las Vegas in December.
In addition to conducting the annual pageant competition, the organization administers the scholarship program. Providing educational opportunities to young ladies competing in the Miss Rodeo America Pageant is a major focus of the organization.
We have a rich tradition and distinguished alumni of past Miss Rodeo Americas, many who continue to contribute to the organization, the sport of professional rodeo and our western lifestyle, long after their reign.
Rich in history and western tradition, the Miss Rodeo America organization relies on its faithful sponsors and and tireless volunteer membership to maintain the integrity and continued success of Miss Rodeo America. Please join us – either as a member at some level or as a business sponsor.
A big thank you to Tarter Farm and Ranch Equipment for allowing Blinged Up to be a part of this year’s Miss Rodeo America Pageant.
