[NORTH PLATTE, NE] Miss Rodeo Nebraska 2023, Rebel Sjeklocha, will take the reins at the coronation celebration January 7 at the D&N Event Center in North Platte. 

Sjeklocha, a 22-year-old graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, won the title in June during the Miss Rodeo Nebraska Association pageant held in conjunction with the Buffalo Bill Rodeo and NEBRASKAland DAYS. 

The coronation gala generates funds for Miss Rodeo Nebraska to travel the state and country promoting rodeo, agriculture, and serving as a positive role model for those young and old. She will compete for the title of Miss Rodeo America 2024 in Las Vegas with the motto – “Dare Greatly” –  encouraging youth across the country to chase their dreams. The event will include Sjeklocha’s official coronation, a meal, silent and live auctions, and live music from the Cox Brothers. 

“After meeting my first Miss Rodeo Nebraska at the age of eight, I knew one day I wanted to fill her boots. Watching that dream materialize has filled me with gratitude and excitement for the year ahead,” said Sjeklocha.

Tickets are $40 for adults, and $30 for visiting royalty and kids 12 and under. Children 5 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.missrodeonebraska.org. Items are being accepted for both the silent and live auctions. For event updates and auction item postings, visit the Miss Rodeo Nebraska Association on Facebook.
