A Texas tradition for more than five decades with the Miss Rodeo Texas inauguration crowning in 1959, the Miss Rodeo Texas Pageant has produced seven Miss Rodeo Americas. Since the inception of the Miss Rodeo Texas Pageant, Miss Rodeo Texas has served as a vibrant, colorful goodwill ambassador of rodeo, the official sport of Texas, working closely with professional rodeos, rodeo associations and community organizations to preserve our western heritage and keep the western industry alive and flourishing in today’s society.
