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.
We have one more Sweetheart to add to the roster, making seven little girls! Meet Charlotte Crader, the 8 year old daughter of Brian and Julie Crader of Union, Oregon. Her love of horses started at an early age and her admiration for rodeo royalty started even before that. Charlotte has been both a participant and a spectator at her hometown rodeo, The Eastern Oregon Livestock Show, her whole life. She's active in 4-H showing both rabbits and sheep. Charlotte loves making new friends, both animal and human alike. With past rodeo royalty in the family, and a huge love of rodeo, Charlotte is determined to make her dream of becoming rodeo queen come true.
