NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Wednesday was a symbol of passing down the throne.

The Miss Rodeo Nebraska held their coronation Wednesday at 9 p.m. at the Buffalo Bill Arena here in North Platte. The event included the crowning of the new Miss Rodeo Nebraska.

Many people were very excited about the event. This is due to last year’s being limited because of the coronavirus pandemic. The crowd for the ceremony was neck to neck and the tickets were sold out.

The opportunity of being Miss Rodeo Nebraska is a great opportunity to have. The title allows that individual to be connected to the community and to help out where it’s needed.

“Well I love the opportunity, especially traveling around the country,” Miss Rodeo Nebraska 2020-2021 Joeli Walrath said.

The new Miss Rodeo Nebraska is Bailey Lehr of Columbus.
