Miss SLE Rodeo Pageant

The Southeastern Livestock Exposition (SLE) is excited to welcome each applicant who desires to compete for the title of Miss SLE Rodeo (MSLER) or Junior Miss SLE Rodeo (JMSLER). The SLE Rodeo is a proud member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and ranks in the top 70 of over 700 rodeos. It is our hope that each contestant understands the magnitude of this achievement, and that each is prepared to represent the Southeastern Livestock Exposition in a professional and dignified manner. Throughout the reign, J / MSLER is expected to observe a high standard of moral and ethical behavior at all times including her presence on all social media.

The purpose of J / MSLER is to serve as an ambassador for the Southeastern Livestock Exposition and to professionally represent her title at various rodeos, parades, and public events in Alabama, as well as in television and radio interviews during the SLE Rodeo & Livestock Week. She will serve as an ambassador of the sport of rodeo and the western lifestyle. She will also be a leader for future pageant contestants as well as other title holders. Once crowned and contract is signed, J / MSLER will begin her reign immediately, and it is expected that she will be able to speak about the SLE mission, how to purchase SLE Rodeo tickets, the schedule of SLE Rodeo Week activities, and achievements of the SLE Rodeo within the PRCA. Whoever wins the title of JMSLER and MSLER should be prepared to participate in the 2024 SLE Rodeo and Livestock Week activities from March 8-17, 2024. A schedule is listed below.

Before applying, please become familiar with the expectations for the 2024 Miss SLE Rodeo and Junior Miss SLE Rodeo titleholders. The mandatory travel schedule is outlined on this webpage as well as in each official rules and regulations packet.
