Reno Rodeo Queen Clinic is January 13-14

Interested Miss Reno Rodeo Candidates Can Learn All About What it Takes to be a Rodeo Queen at this Two-Day Clinic

RENO, Nev. (January 2, 2018) – The Reno Rodeo is looking for Miss Reno Rodeo candidates who have a love for horses and rodeo culture and want to travel while serving as a goodwill ambassador to the “Wildest, Richest Rodeo in the West.” Those interested are encouraged to attend the Miss Reno Rodeo Queen Clinic, January 13 and 14 to learn all about what it takes to be a rodeo queen.

Miss Rodeo America 2014, Paige Nicholson-Bergeron, will lead the clinic. She has many years of Rodeo Queen experience and knows what it takes to compete and win on the national stage. In addition to being named Miss Rodeo, Paige was also 2013 Miss Rodeo Mississippi and 2012 Miss Dixie National.

Strong candidates for Miss Reno Rodeo are poised and elegant, but aren’t afraid to get their boots dirty. Miss Reno Rodeo has integrity, is honest and reliable, fun and charismatic. The Miss Reno Rodeo pageant represents decades of Nevada and Reno Rodeo history, and the 2019 Miss Reno Rodeo will become a part of that legacy.

“The Reno Rodeo Queen clinic was so important to my success as Miss Reno Rodeo,” said Jennifer Fisk, Miss Reno Rodeo 2018. “I was intimidated by the thought of running for a title I knew very little about, but after the clinic I was much more comfortable going through the entire process. The feedback I received was invaluable and after just two days I had a full tool belt of things I needed to be successful.”

During her reign, Miss Reno Rodeo will travel throughout the region representing the Reno Rodeo while leading programs such as the Reno Rodeo Reading Roundup. She gets to use her influence as Miss Reno Rodeo to visit at-risk elementary schools, providing books to young students and giving them lessons on the three R’s: reading, rodeo and responsibility. She also gets to travel to rodeos and events across the region including the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.

Applications for the Reno Rodeo Queen Clinic will be accepted through 5 p.m. Jan. 5. The fee is $100 for participants and $25 for parents/observers. The clinic takes place Jan. 13-14 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at New West Distributing, located at 325 Nugget Ave #101 in Sparks.
