About Miss Rodeo California:
Miss Rodeo California, Inc. is a 501c(4) organization. The Miss Rodeo California Pageant objective is to select a State Ambassador for the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association, its sponsors, and supporters. The primary mission of the process is that she will promote the western culture and way of life by educating the general public on topics including ranching and farming heritage, the agriculture industry and the sport of rodeo. An additional outcome is to provide educational opportunities for these young women to be prepared for the leadership positions of tomorrow.
Miss Rodeo California symbolizes the youth of our nation who wish to further promote Agriculture, and the sport of Professional Rodeo, and in doing so, promotes the great western way of life. She is the ideal, agriculturally oriented American young woman, who embodies professionalism, speaks intelligently, and has integrity, good character, knowledge and grace. She consistently models and demonstrates these characteristics as she travels extensively across our country and at times, to other countries as well.
The Miss Rodeo California competition includes the following categories: Horsemanship, Speech, Modeling, Personal & Horsemanship Interviews, Test, Raffle Ticket Sales, Photogenic, Personality & Appearance.
As the newly crowned state rodeo queen Scarry received a educational scholarship, a buckle, saddle, perpetual chaps, perpetual crown, and other various awards.
Scarry has also been awarded the prestigious opportunity to represent California in the Miss Rodeo America 2022 Pageant. The Miss Rodeo America Pageant is held in December each year in conjunction with the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Miss Rodeo California continues to exemplify and promote the vast western culture that exists throughout our great state. I whole heartedly admire women of such class and poise. As I grew up, Miss Rodeo California was always an icon for not only class and poise, but independence, horsemanship and knowledge. Being Miss Rodeo California, you make the jump from representing one community to communities scattered in every nook of our state. The kind of experience gained through an opportunity of this magnitude is in fact, unlike any other,” Brittney Phillips, Pageant Director, said.
“I’m so proud of all of the contestants. I’m constantly in awe of how they carry themselves and the hard work they all put in to compete at a state level pageant. Every one of the young ladies have a passion for rodeo, are educated and show a level of professionalism that is very impressive. It’s truly an honor to know them,” Markie Battaglia, Miss Rodeo California Inc National Director, said.
“I’m elated to have the opportunity to work alongside such a dedicated board of directors in our inaugural year and even more excited for the future of the organization. Our focus more than ever has been increased scholarships. This year and every year forward each of our contestants will walk away with an educational scholarship. In addition, we recognize the need for resources to better educate and support our local California pageants. We fully intend on establishing guidelines to provide a lifeline for aspiring rodeo queen pageants, pageant directors and contestants. 2023 will be a year of not only a new decade, but broadening horizons. I look forward to working with Jackie and watching her year unfold,” Brittney Phillips, President & Pageant Director, said.
Surrounded by the Coastal, Klamath, and Cascade Mountain Ranges and farmlands to the south is the town of Redding, which Jackie Scarry proudly calls home. Having access to mountains, lakes, and rolling hills, Jackie has been able to pursue her love of photography, outdoor adventure, and everything cowboy culture. The 24-year-old daughter of Joe and Janet Scarry was introduced to the life of rodeo at 10-years-old and hasn’t looked back. She enjoys the familial atmosphere found within a rodeo committee, as well as the adrenalin rush found watching the rodeo competitors dominate their field.
When not working as a Dermatology Medical Assistant, Jackie spends her time competing in ranch versatility classes, reading a good book, or drawing. With a career goal of Crime Scene Investigations, Jackie’s final class for her Associates degree is underway and will start classes next year with Liberty University pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice.
