Having selected the first Miss Rodeo Oregon in 1957 the organization has continued over the years to be comprised of hardworking volunteers that help to ensure the success and expansion of the organization and its programs. Information about the program in its early years is scarce, but in recent years Miss Rodeo Oregon Pageant, Inc. has taken great strides in becoming a strong and successful youth oriented organization, providing a program for Oregon horsewomen that encourages positive growth in strength of character and personality, healthy attitudes, self-fulfillment and self-respect. Miss Rodeo Oregon, Inc. is organized and conducted to select the most qualified young Oregon horsewoman to promote the sport of professional rodeo in Oregon, and to represent the State of Oregon at the annual Miss Rodeo America Pageant.
