Miss Rodeo Louisiana to crown successor

Cheyenne Benoit

After a long year of traveling across the U. S. and Louisiana, Miss Rodeo Louisiana, Cheyenne Benoit, heads to Las Vegas for eight days of competition at the Miss Rodeo America Pageant, Dec. 1-8.

The pageant is hosting 27 queens from their home states who will be competing in horsemanship, impromptu and extemporaneous speaking, interviews, and modeling.

Queens spend their reign traveling across the country to PRCA and other professional rodeo events promoting the sport of rodeo and the western way of life.

Benoit was honored to represent Louisiana at some of the biggest events in pro rodeo, such as the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame Inductions, the Ram Circuit Finals, and Silver Spurs in Kissimmee, Fla., the Greeley Stampede in Greeley, Colo. and the granddaddy of them all, Cheyenne Frontier Days in Cheyenne, Wyo. She also took part in week-long celebrations at PRCA rodeos in Springhill, Winnfield, Thibodaux, Lake Charles, and Leesville.

As her reign as Miss Rodeo Louisiana comes to an end and sights are on Miss Rodeo America 2020, she wants to thank everyone who has supported her and prayed for her during this journey. The pageant commences Sunday, Dec. 8, with the crowning of Miss Rodeo America 2020, at The Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas
