KC girl in first Miss Rodeo Missouri Sweetheart

Press Release Local Cowgirl Named 2013 Miss Rodeo Missouri Sweetheart By Miss Rodeo Missouri Pageant Association December 20, 2012 Kansas City –Life as Miss Rodeo Missouri Sweetheart 2013 begins for Rileigh Lawrence on January 1st, which is when she officially becomes Missouri's state rodeo Sweetheart. Lawrence, daughter of Amanda Lawrence and Anthony Lawrence, Kansas City, Missouri, is Miss Rodeo Missouri Sweetheart for 2013, a title she won in Kansas City Missouri at the Miss Rodeo Missouri Pageant held at Benjamin Ranch in October, during the American Royal Rodeo. This was the first year for the Miss Rodeo Missouri Sweetheart Division and the Miss Rodeo Missouri Pageant Association has high hopes to continue to grow this division, which they feel is the future of rodeo royalty in Missouri. Miss Rodeo Missouri Sweethearts are young ladies who are 3-7 years of age who love rodeo, horses, the western way of life, and the state of Missouri. The Sweetheart contestants modeled a western outfit of their choosing. While on stage modeling, the contestants were asked a very simple question such as, “What is your horse’s name?” or something similar. Lawrence was one of 18 contestants that were declared Miss Rodeo Missouri Sweethearts at this year’s competition. “The Miss Rodeo Missouri Sweetheart’s Division gets the girls involved in rodeo queen pageants without the pressure of winning or losing at such a young age.” Sandy Drake, Director of the Sweetheart Division of the Miss Rodeo Missouri Pageant. “Lawrence will wear her crown and banners at horse and rodeo events of her choosing throughout the year. Her duties as Sweetheart of Missouri rodeo will be mainly as an ambassador in traveling across the state. Her main job at the rodeos will be to sign autographs, interact with the crowd and build relationships with communities and the public.” For additional information about the Miss Rodeo Missouri Association and the Sweetheart Division or to arrange to sponsor or to donate contact the Miss Rodeo Missouri Pageant Association at www.missrodeomissouri.net, or www.facebook.com/pages/Miss-Rodeo-Missouri/163690767014110 by email to missrodeomissouri@gmail.com
