UPRA Rodeo Royalty, Hopefuls Make Promotional Visit to KSST, Channel 18

Smiley face

With the “Cinch” United Professional Rodeo Finals in town this weekend, the nine candidates for UPRA titles were making their way around town prior to arena competitions during the rodeo’s three performances. These young ladies range in age from thirteen to eighteen and represent rodeos and cattle companies in Texas and Louisiana. All of them are already seasoned rodeo competitors who aspire to represent the UPRA’s five-state circuit. Both the current Miss UPRA and Miss Teen UPRA are actually from the same community, the Scroggins area of Hopkins County, the first time that has ever occurred in Finals history! Both these girls will have to pass their crowns to new winners during this rodeo.

The finalists are pictured here, left to right;
