Held annually since 1954, the Miss Rodeo North Dakota Pageant (MRND) is open to driven women, ages 18 to 26, from North Dakota. The young women who are a part of this 501(c)4 nonprofit organization travel the country promoting their communities, the western lifestyle & economies, and participating supporters.
As a volunteer organization, it is our mission to help these women in their academic and professional development. The skills desired in a potential titleholder are the abilities to communicate and relate to the public, their familiarity with current events and agriculture, and the drive to make a difference among her peers.
The Miss Rodeo North Dakota Pageant Association's membership is state-wide and is run by dedicated volunteers. There are no paid employees. Funding is provided by sponsorship, donations, and fundraising events. Miss Rodeo North Dakota devotes a year of her life traveling and representing. Funds raised help support the chosen young lady with her traveling, providing a scholarship for higher education, and her quest of becoming Miss Rodeo America.
