NOVEMBER 9-11, 2023

Pageant Entry Deadline: Friday, September 1, 2023

Each November, The Miss Rodeo Kentucky Pageant selects one young woman in each division to serve as an official ambassador who will promote the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), Kentucky's agricultural industry and the Western way of life. Miss Rodeo Kentucky will represent the state of Kentucky at the annual Miss Rodeo America pageant held in the December of her reign.

During the pageant, each contestants skills and experience will be tested through public speaking, written test, horsemanship, interviews and stage competition. The three-day pageant will culminate with the crowning of Miss Rodeo, Miss Teen Rodeo and Junior Miss Rodeo Kentucky 2024 at the Fashion Show & Coronation. 

Throughout the year, selected titleholders will have many experiences for both personal and professional growth through philanthropic platform development, networking opportunities, appearances, civic public speaking engagements, and so much more.
