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.
The Hospitality Room is being disassembled. Scrapbooks have been picked up. (Thanks to Prairie Leather of Spokane for Taylor Ann's gorgeous scrapbook cover!) Still on display is the portrait commissioned by Montana Silversmith for Taylor McNair, MRA 2020 awards, and the 2020 Horsemanship saddle. Tomorrow, the Justin Boot Parade will wind its way through Cowboy Christmas and be followed by the Scholarship Foundation auction at the Las Vegas Convention Center!
