Looking for the top rodeo girl

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — The pageantry of the rodeo will soon ride into a couple of Garvin County cities.

Included in the festive times of upcoming rodeos in both Pauls Valley are Elmore City are the rodeo queens.

Unmarried contestants between the ages of 14 and 26 are now being sought for the Miss Heritage Days Rodeo Pageant this summer in PV.

Ticket sales are already underway. Horsemanship, interview and appearance are categories that will be judged June 27-29 at the Pauls Valley Round Up Club Rodeo Arena in Wacker Park.

The pageant will consist of three categories to determine the winner: Ticket Sales, Horsemanship and the combined Personal Interview and Appearance.

Ticket sales account for 50 percent of the contestant’s score, while 25 percent goes for both horsemanship skills and interview and appearance.

The Pauls Valley Round Up Club is looking for well-rounded contestants and would like to encourage every contestant to practice their horsemanship and interview and appearance skills.

The horsemanship portion of the pageant will take place at the Round Up Club Arena. Horses will be provided for each contestant to perform a preselected reining pattern.

The interview portion of the pageant will be held at the arena club house directly after horsemanship.

The 2013 Miss Heritage Days Rodeo will receive a Billy Cook Saddle, a saddle pad and be given the opportunity to represent the Heritage Days Rodeo at the Miss Rodeo USA pageant in January 2014.

In addition to her other awards, the winner will also have her 2014 Miss Rodeo USA Pageant entry fee, a value of $250, paid by the Pauls Valley Round Up Club.

The winner must be between 18-26 years old and have graduated high school in order to compete for Miss Rodeo USA.

If a contestant wins that is between the ages of 14-17 the local club will pay $250 toward the cost of attending the Miss Rodeo USA clinic held in Pauls Valley in August 2014.

All other Miss Heritage Days Rodeo Pageant contestants will receive 10 percent of their total ticket sales.

If you would like more information on the Miss Heritage Days Rodeo Pageant or would like to enter the pageant, contact Bailey Pyle at 405-207-4855 or Carrie English at 405-207-4658.
