WHY I WANT TO BECOME MISS TEEN RODEO WASHINGTON “People without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots” -Marcus Garvey
Rodeo stands as one of the longest traditions in America, and is a symbol of our American spirit. As Miss Teen Rodeo Washington; I would be able to act as a peer mentor to youth, spur others to embrace their western heritage, and encourage them to be an active part of our industry. I want to inspire others to take pride in roots that make up our history and understand the importance of agriculture.My aspiration is to be Miss Teen Rodeo Washington so I can continue the legacy and preserve the western way of life in our younger generations.
