Local Brittany Howard Vying for Miss Rodeo USA in Oklahoma

rodeo 300HOPKINS COUNY, Ky. (1/14/14) — Every year rodeo queens from around the nation come to the International Pro Rodeo Association, to participate in the Miss Rodeo USA. This year’s competition is being held in Oklahoma City, Okla.

Brittany Howard from Slaughters, Ky., who is a Madisonville North-Hopkins High School 2010 graduate and a Murray State University student, is competing this week in Oklahoma City for the Miss Rodeo USA.

“Brittany is pretty much representing the state of Kentucky,” said Debbie Howard, mother of Brittany Howard. “We would like all the support we can get this week.”

Back in 1966, the IPRA Board of Governors set out to establish the basic pageant rules and carefully selected the queen who would be representing IPRA. Even though the rules have changed over the years, the basic concepts and principals have not. Regardless of prior state winnings, the IPRA allow participants to compete.

Contestants are put through a difficult judging schedule, where they are judged based on their, personality, appearance and horsemanship. Contestants, speeches, style shows, horsemanship patterns, written exams and interviews are examples of what the judges score during the event.

“This competition is more than just modeling and speeches,” said Howard. “They have to show horsemanship patterns, styles shows and be able to interview well. It’s a lot of hard work put into this.”

Even though the judging of this event can be tedious, the tension from the judging schedule is eased by media interviews, luncheons, dinners, rodeo performances, and style shows.

“There is a voting process for MRUSAP14 People’s Choice Award going on all week long,” said Howard. “All you do is go to the Miss USA Facebook page, like it and vote every day for Brittany. All the support we can get from the voting would be much appreciated and helpful.”
