The Cherokee PRCA Rodeo does not hold a rodeo queen contest. But we are pleased to welcome the following ladies to our event:
Miss Rodeo Iowa 2015
A true small town county girl kicking her boots off in Winterset, Iowa, Hannah graduated from Winterset High School and received Bachelor of Science degrees in Agricultural Education with a teacher certification and Animal Science with an equine option from Iowa State University. She is the 23-year-old daughter of Stacy Hilsabeck.
Hannah grew up on a hobby farm and was very active in 4-H and FFA showing: rabbits, sheep, pigs, cattle, and horses. It was here that she fell in love with horses and joined an equestrian drill team, Central Iowa Dancing Hooves, and traveled with them for 3 years. In 2011, Hannah moved to Estes Park, CO, and was a horseback guide on trail rides through Rocky Mountain National Park and Roosevelt National Forrest with SK Horses, Inc. She has also worked for the Iowa State Fair Entry Department as the equine specialist and horse barn office manager. While her favorite activity remains just trail riding at home, she has also held many previous rodeo queen titles including: 2007 Madison Co. 4-H Jr. Cowgirl Queen, 2008 Winterset FFA Senior Cowgirl Queen, 2009 Abdallah Shrine Rodeo Queen, 2009 Dallas Co. Fair Rodeo Queen, Miss Teen Rodeo Iowa 2010, and Miss Sidney Iowa Rodeo 2013.
Hannah enjoys spending most of her time with her friends and family and loves the outdoors. She was a competitive gymnast for 13 years and has since taken up coaching youth gymnastics. While in high school she was involved in speech and debate, pep club, National Honor Society and was a varsity football and competition cheerleader. In college, she spent most of her time volunteering and working at the University Horse Barn. Her future plans include teaching in a high school agriculture education program and returning to receive her Master’s Degree in animal reproduction and genetics so she can eventually work in the animal agriculture industry.
During her reign as Miss Rodeo Iowa 2015, Hannah will make visits schools, libraries, nursing homes, agriculture and equine events and of course rodeos to promote Iowa’s rich Western heritage. She will travel throughout Iowa and also make out of state appearances in Colorado, Florida, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Texas, Kentucky, Nebraska, Wyoming and elsewhere. In December she will represent Iowa at the Miss Rodeo America Pageant where she will vie for the coveted title and over $90,000 in educational scholarships and other awards.
“It is truly an honor and a dream come true to hold the title of Miss Rodeo Iowa. As Iowa’s First Lady of Rodeo, I look forward to a year of service, giving back to the agriculture industry and sport of rodeo for shaping me into the woman that I am today. It is my goal to combine my faith, knowledge and passion to bring to life the hardworking image of the American cowboy, giving old and new rodeo fans a sense of pride in one of our nation’s legacies.”.
