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.

Please contact either of the Pageant Directors with specific questions about each pageant.

 

Miss Rodeo Oregon Sweetheart:

The Sweetheart Pageant is held for one day during the Miss Teen and Junior Miss Rodeo Oregon Pageant.  Girls eligible for the Sweetheart category should be 4 to 8 years old by June 1.

This is a fun opportunity for girls who love rodeo and the western way of life! There is no judging and all girls receive a banner and crown. Girls are Miss Rodeo Oregon Sweethearts for the day but they often show up at other rodeo events dressed in crown and banner for fun!
