Behind The Chaps: Miss Rodeo Wisconsin

As many other Miss Rodeo Wisconsin’s before me, I wanted to represent Wisconsin’s unique agriculture through my chaps. I started with the base as the color of cranberries which are very abundant in the state as more than 60 percent of the country’s crop is produced in Wisconsin. After long a winter, Wisconsinites gain hope for spring when Wood Violet flowers bloom from April to June. What better insect to have help pollinate those flowers than honeybees? Growing up, I had two hives where I learned how important the Wisconsin state insect, honeybees, are to the environment and agriculture. Lastly, the silver accents connect to the silver that shines in the Miss Rodeo Wisconsin crown. These chaps are very important to me as I have never designed a pair before, and with the help of Lazy P Creations, we were able to bring my designs to life.
