Washington County will welcome Miss Rodeo USA 2021 Kylee Campbell this week for the Washington County Ag Center Rodeo scheduled for Friday, April 2 and Saturday, April 3.
Kylee Campbell, a 20-year-old Huntsville, Alabama cowgirl, reigns as Miss Rodeo USA 2021. With this honor, Campbell becomes the tenth Alabamian to hold the prestigious title. Alabama now holds the record for the highest number of titleholders in the pageant’s 56-year history. As the official ambassador for the International Professional Rodeo Association, Kylee will travel approximately 100,000 miles throughout the United States and Canada promoting professional rodeo as Miss Rodeo USA 2021.
Campbell is a student at the University of Alabama where she is on the Dean’s List and competes on the school’s western equestrian team as a reining and horsemanship competitor. She holds national titles in the Palomino Horse Breeders Association and the American Paint Horse Association. With her studies placed on hold this year due to her travel schedule as Miss Rodeo USA, she plans to graduate with a major in Public Relations and a minor in Agricultural-Business.
Grounded in faith, Kylee has had many mentors that have shaped her life. For this reason, she lives her life as an advocate for her platform, Mentoring Matters, seeing herself as a positive role model. After her reign, she hopes to use her rodeo and equine experiences and education to develop a non-profit business with a focus on mentoring through equine competition.
Multiple young women from across the United States competed for six days for the opportunity to serve as the official ambassador for the sport of professional rodeo. Kylee’s knowledge of horses, poise in personal interviews, beauty in modeling, and kindness shined throughout the week.
Tickets for the Washington County Ag Center are $15 for adults and $10 for youth at the gate. Children under six are admitted free of charge. Advance tickets are available at a reduced price at Smith Farm Supply.
Gates open on Friday and Saturday at 5:00 P.M. The Rodeo starts at 7:00 P.M. at the Washington County Ag Center located at 882 Grady Mertz Road in Tennille.
