Miss Rodeo North Dakota Pageant Association
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.
