2014 Miss California Rodeo Salinas Contest Open for Entries February 14th


Big Week in Salinas is the week surrounding the California Rodeo Salinas. It is filled with community events such as parades, concerts, barbecues and the prestigious Miss California Rodeo Salinas contest. Young ladies travel from all over the state of California to compete for this coveted title in hopes of representing the largest Rodeo in California. The winner will act as an ambassador who travels to events like Rodeo parades and Ag Day at the Capitol in Sacramento. Miss California Rodeo Salinas educates people about the traditions and events here in Salinas as well as the rodeo industry as a whole.

The contest consists of horsemanship, personality, appearance and scholarship categories. The 2014 contest will begin on Wednesday July 16th and Miss California Rodeo Salinas 2013 Grace Tobias will pass the title on to the winner during the opening performance of the California Rodeo Salinas Thursday July 17th. The contest winner will receive a $2,500 cash scholarship to be used at the college of her choice, a gold and silver trophy belt buckle, the use of a two-horse trailer for one year, along with many other gifts and the privilege of wearing the Miss California Rodeo Salinas gold and silver tiara.

Competition is open to young women 18-21 years of age. Contestants must be at least 18 years old by July 1, 2014 without having turned 22 by July 31, 2014. In order to be eligible, contestants must be sponsored by either a recognized horsemen’s organization or another recognized community organization (not commercial). Please note that Miss California Rodeo Salinas 2014 will have numerous rewarding opportunities and experiences during her reign. Therefore, if any contestant entering the 2014 Miss California Rodeo Salinas contest currently holds a queen title representing another rodeo or organization, her reign must have ended prior to the start of the 2014 Miss California Rodeo Salinas contest in order to compete.

Entries will be accepted starting on February 14, 2014. The deadline for entering the Miss California Rodeo Salinas contest is May 5, 2014. Entries must be postmarked by that date.
