A Grande Prairie woman will be competing for the next Miss Rodeo Canada crown this November. After receiving the title of Miss Grande Prairie Stompede 2015, Spirit River’s Miranda Pybus says she has been aiming to compete in this next competition.
“My goal, if I did win Miss Rodeo Canada, get the connections and bring those connections back to the north to host clinics and give back to the youth. I had so much help as a kid that I need to give back to the youth and make sure they receive the help that I got.”
The 2016 Miss Rodeo Canada crown went to Samantha Stokes of High Prairie which Pybus says is comforting knowing that the area already has the title. She will be competing against three other girls including Desirae Jackson of Sundre, Jadey van der Vlis of Ponoka, and Ali Mullin of Medicine Hat.
“Two of the girls have already competed in the states and were high school rodeo queens. The competition is tough this year and a lot of the other girls have said the competition is tough.”
Pybus says the speech is something she is looking forward to because she has put many hours of work into it. The competition runs in November with the crowning of the 2017 Miss Rodeo Canada happening on November 11th.
