MKSR Mission

The mission of MKSR is to select young ladies to serve as promoters for the sport of rodeo in the state of Pennsylvania. These young ladies, known as "rodeo queens", are passionate about rodeo, horses, agriculture, and the western way of life; but, being a rodeo queen goes far beyond what meets the eye.

National Pageant

Each year the reigning Miss titleholder has the privilege and opportunity to compete in the national Miss Rodeo USA
(MRUSA) pageant held concurrently with the International Finals Rodeo (IFR). The IFR is the International Professional Rodeo
Association's (IPRA) season-ending championship rodeo. Both the MRUSA Pageant and the IFR occur every January in
Oklahoma. The Miss Rodeo USA pageant is open to reigning rodeo queens from across the nation.

What does the MKSR queen program do?

Besides providing a platform for young ladies to be advocates for the sport of rodeo and positive role models for younger generations, the MKSR queen program allows the opportunity for young ladies to build self-confidence, enhance public speaking skills, network with other people in the industry, make new friends, and gain leadership skills to be prepared for the future.

 

MKSR State Pageant

MKSR hosts a yearly pageant to select upcoming titleholders for the year ahead. During the pageant, contestants are scored by a panel of judges on their appearance, personality, and public speaking skills, in addition to their riding ability. Contestants also take an exam to test their knowledge of equine science and rodeo knowledge. 

 

Visit the Pageant page of our website for more information.

Non-profit

Miss Keystone State Rodeo (MKSR) is a division of Miss Rodeo Pennsylvania, Inc. - a 501(c)3 public charity incorporated
by President and CEO, Ann Grenier, in 2015.

What is a rodeo queen?

Being a rodeo queen is a full-time job that requires many hours of planning, traveling, coordinating, and communicating.

As public figures, rodeo queens are required to be "the face" of rodeo, and spend time interacting with the general public - both on social media and at in-person events.

 

While being a rodeo queen has its perks, the queens do not receive compensation during their year of reign. Instead, they rely
heavily on sponsors and donors to fund their endeavors.
