SALINAS, CA, February 7, 2013 – The California Rodeo Salinas is one of the top ten regular season professional rodeos in the United States, but not everyone knows that. One of the jobs of Miss California Rodeo Salinas is to travel to various events promoting the California Rodeo and educating people about the event, traditions and more. Each year contestants come to Salinas to compete for this coveted title and the honor of representing the largest Rodeo in California.
The contest consists of horsemanship, personality, appearance and scholarship categories. The 2013 contest will begin on Wednesday July 17th and Miss California Rodeo Salinas 2012 Tracy Hinson will pass the title on to the winner during the opening performance of the California Rodeo Salinas Thursday July 18th. 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, 2013 without having turned 22 by July 31, 2013. 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 2013 will have numerous rewarding opportunities and experiences during her reign. Therefore, if any contestant entering the 2013 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 2013 Miss California Rodeo Salinas contest in order to compete.
