We haven't had a Miss Rodeo America at the Greeley Stampede since 2007 when Ashley Andrews visited Island Grove Park. Justin Watada, Stampede General Manager said, “We have been fortunate to have Miss Rodeo Colorado as an ambassador since 1990. It will be fun to see the two of them together for our 95th annual event."

Madelaine Mills is the 2016 Miss Rodeo Colorado. She was joined by Miss Rodeo America Saturday at the Big Buckle Ball.
