Miss Rodeo Nebraska Pageant this weekend

The Miss Rodeo Nebraska/Miss Teen Rodeo Nebraska Pageant will kick-off Sunday in North Platte. Thousands of dollars in scholarship money are up for grabs, including a two-year, full-tuition scholarship to Mid-Plains Community College. Other prizes include a saddle, buckle, tiara, jewelry, tack and photography sessions. The woman selected as Miss Rodeo Nebraska 2019 will spend a year traveling the U.S. representing the pageant, Nebraska and the sport of professional rodeo. A winner will be crowned June 13 at the Wild West Arena during the first night of the award-winning Buffalo Bill Rodeo and in conjunction with NEBRASKAland Days, the official state celebration. A new Miss Teen Rodeo Nebraska will also be crowned June 13 at North Platte Community Playhouse. The theme for the teen coronation is “God Bless America Again,” and veterans as well as active military personnel will be the guests of honor. Servicemen and women will be admitted free to all pageant events by showing a military ID.
