2019 Miss Newell Labor Day—Emma Rogers
As my year, 2019 Miss Newell Labor Day Rodeo Queen comes to a close. I can not help but look back at the year I had, it started off with the Newell Ram Show in September. Then in November, I made the long trip across the state to watch the Miss Rodeo South Dakota pageant in Brookings during the First Chance Bonanza Rodeo. I was able to be home from school in December to welcome home our new Miss Rodeo America 2020. With the start of the new year, I attended the Miss Rodeo South Dakota 2020 Coronation in Sturgis and a few weeks later the Black Hills Stock Show. In a blink of an eye it was summer. I made appearances at the Black Hill Roundup and Days of 76 in July. One of my last appearances was the Faith Stock Show and Rodeo where I had a great time and can not wait to go back. I would like to thank my parents for the help and support this year and throughout my life. I have enjoyed getting to know Jr Miss, Rachael, Little Miss Sedona and their families, and a big Thank You for everything they did. I hope to in the future to finish school and work in agriculture. Thank You to all our Sponsors and Good Luck to all of the contestants.
