South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa is New Home of Miss Rodeo America Pageant
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO- The Miss Rodeo America, Inc. Executive Board is pleased to announce that the Miss Rodeo America Pageant will return to Las Vegas from November 28- December 5, 2021. For the first time the MRA Pageant will be held at the South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa. The beautiful venue is cowboy central during the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. The South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa is a resort located in the heart of the premiere southwest Las Vegas valley just minutes away from the famous Las Vegas Strip. The annual MRA Pageant is a competition, held in conjunction with the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, that selects a young woman to represent the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association as its official ambassador and spokeswoman. The MRA Pageant was canceled in 2020 due to the global pandemic. With the reopening of Las Vegas, the MRA Pageant returns to the city where it has been held since 1985.
Titleholders from all over the country will represent their states in the weeklong pageant in Las Vegas. The contest itself consists of a horsemanship competition, a written test on equine science and rodeo knowledge, extensive interviews, extemporaneous speaking, and a fashion show. The contestants will also enjoy a night at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and an evening under the bright Vegas lights.
The young lady selected out of the twenty-seven women vying for the title of Miss Rodeo America 2022 will travel approximately 100,000 miles and appear at nearly 100 rodeo performances, as well as making appearances at schools, civic groups and other special events in order to educate the public and create awareness about the sport of rodeo, its sponsors, and its opportunities.
The Landstrom’s Black Hills Gold crown is accompanied by more that $20,000 in educational scholarships and prizes including a wardrobe of Wrangler jeans and shirts, an assortment of Montana Silversmiths jewelry, and a selection of Justin Boots and Greeley Hat Works hats.
A full pageant schedule, ticket information and room reservation information will be available soon at www.missrodeoamerica.com.
