Pageants

Requirements for Miss Rodeo Oregon Pageants:

The purpose of Miss Rodeo Oregon, Inc. Foundation is to provide a program for Oregon horsewomen that encourages positive growth in strength of character and personality, healthy attitudes, self-fulfillment and self-respect.  The Junior and Teen Miss Rodeo Oregon Pageants are organized to select the most qualified Oregon horsewomen to promote the sport of professional rodeo in Oregon and to represent the State of Oregon.  Miss Rodeo Oregon is chosen to represent the sport of rodeo and to compete at the Miss Rodeo America Pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Sweetheart/Junior/Teen Pageant is held on the fourth weekend of June at Tillamook County Rodeo.  The Pageant Director is Tanya Marie Utberg at (503) 807-7149.

The Miss Rodeo Oregon Pageant is held in conjunction with the Canby Rodeo in August.  The Pageant Director is Tanya Cloutier at (541) 977-2100.
