1 of 3

Jordan Tierney was crowned Miss Rodeo America 2020 on Sunday, December 8 at the Tropicana Theater in Las Vegas.

The 25 year-old from Oral, South Dakota represented her home state at the Miss Rodeo America Pageant as the 2019 Miss Rodeo South Dakota, becoming the fifth from her state to hold the coveted national title.

Jordan currently resides on the family ranch, where she enjoys roping, riding and helping with daily tasks when she is at home. Jordan graduated from Chadron State College with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with a Minor in Marketing.She plans on furthering her education through pursuing a master’s in marketing with an emphasis in market research.

The Landstrom’s Black Hills Gold crown is accompanied by more than $20,000 in educational scholarships and prizes including a wardrobe of Wrangler jeans and shirts, an assortment of Montana Silversmiths jewelry, and a selection of Justin Boots.

In addition to the title, Jordan earned the Appearance Award.

This year, twenty-seven contestants represented their states in the weeklong national pageant consisting of a horsemanship competition, a written test on equine science and rodeo knowledge, extensive interviews, extemporaneous speaking, and a fashion show. The top five contestants – from Nebraska, South Dakota, Utah, Kansas, and Washington – each answered a question about being an influential woman in Professional Rodeo and what impact they will have during their year.

During her reign as the official representative of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, Jordan will travel around 100,000 miles and appear at nearly 100 rodeo performances, as well as making appearances at schools, civic groups and other special events in order to educate the public and create awareness about the sport of rodeo, its sponsors, and its opportunities.

Miss Rodeo Wyoming 2020- Rachel Derner

On Friday, August 16, 2019, during the Wyoming State Fair PRCA Rodeo, the gold and jade crown of Miss Rodeo Wyoming 2020 was placed on the hat of Rachel Derner, Miss Laramie Jubilee Days 2019 by Hannah Ostheimer, Miss Rodeo Wyoming 2019. The four-day pageant was held in conjunction with the Wyoming State Fair. Derner is the 62nd titleholder and the 16th lady from Laramie to hold the title. The judges for this year’s pageant were J.T. Croft (Copeland, KS), Shelia Croft (Copeland, KS), and Jacquie Schwab (Goddard, KS). Rachel was judged in the categories of horsemanship, personality, and appearance. She was also awarded the photogenic and knowledge awards.

“I am honored to be Miss Rodeo Wyoming 2020. I look forward to sharing my love of rodeo, agriculture and all things western while traveling to the country’s best rodeos,”
Derner is the 22-year-old daughter of Justin and Tansie Derner, and big sister to Rebecca, Teigen and Sage. She has grown up being active in 4-H and FFA, using these organizations to find her voice for agriculture. In high school, she developed a passion for advocating for agriculture. Rachel served as the 2015-2016 Wyoming FFA State Reporter. With the public speaking experience she gained from FFA, and the deep-rooted family history in the cowboy way of life, the role of a rodeo queen seemed like a perfect fit for Rachel. She is pursuing a degree in Agriculture Communications from the University of Wyoming, where she also served as the captain of the Cowboy Joe Mascot Handlers. She hopes to use this degree to help farmers and ranchers make profitable decisions and help to preserve the agriculture industry. She believes in the agriculture industry, the sport of rodeo, cowboy heritage, and the western way of life, and can’t think of a better way to serve those people than as Miss Rodeo Wyoming.
