Miss Rodeo America 2009 Crowned

The annual Miss Rodeo America Pageant took place this past week at The Orleans Hotel and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. The pageant runs roughly one week before the start of National Finals Rodeo, overlapping that 10-day event by two days. The ballroom venue was sold out as 27 state queens, mostly from the Western U.S., came on the stage to entertain the crowd with an opening dance number. Each queen was then individually introduced, dressed to the nines in beautiful Western evening gowns and cowboy hats.

Ten finalists were chosen, then the top five. Each of the five finalists were asked how they would further the efforts of the Miss Rodeo organization over the next 50 years. Most of the responses alluded to utilization of new media, while remaining true to rodeo history and heritage.
Winner Maegan Ridley of Alta Loma, Calif. won the honor of being crowned Miss Rodeo America 2009. Ridley served as Miss Rodeo California 2008, and during the next year, she will travel more than 100,000 miles representing Miss Rodeo America, Inc. and the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.
Miss Rodeo America 2008, Amy Wilson, of Colby, Kan., fulfilled her duties at the 50th anniversary of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Ridley was introduced as the 2009 Miss Rodeo America at the 4th performance of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, on Sunday, Dec. 6, 2008. She will begin making appearances at rodeos across the country in January.
