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, Inc. Foundation 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. Foundation 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.
Hello my name is Maggie Zacharias. I am 17 years old and a Junior at Joseph Charter School. I live in Joseph with my parents Luke and Merilee, my little sister Quincee and my older brother Triston. Last year, I was crowned Queen of the Elgin Stampede. I am active in 4H, FFA , Volleyball, and Basketball. My trusty mount for the rodeo season is named Snickers. Snickers and I have a great bond, we are looking forward for years to come! Some of my favorite things to do are to ride in the log truck with my dad, ride horses, hang out with family and see my friends.
