    Miss Teen Rodeo Montana 2015 - Horsemanship, Appearance, Projection and Presentation, Photogenic

    is the 15 year old daughter of Tom and Amy Minow and the older sister to Kyle Minow. Miranda hails from Broadus, MT. Miranda is a sophomore at Powder River County District High School in Broadus where she is an honor roll student. She is an active member of FFA and 4-H, serving as her 4-H club president, a 4-H county ambassador, and is a grand champion in 4-H public speaking. Miranda has held the titles of 2012 Miss Southeastern Montana Rodeo Little Miss and 2013-14 Miss Southeastern Montana Rodeo Princess. Miranda enjoys dancing (ballet and jazz), SADD, Speech and Drama, FFA and 4-H (horsemanship, teen leadership, photography, range science, and market steer), riding horses, rodeo, playing piano, modeling, traveling, working at the Copper Moon, teaching Sunday school, cheering on the All-Star Cheer Squad, and helping her family on the ranch.

    When asked why she wants to become Miss Teen Rodeo Montana, Miranda says it all started when she was three with one of her first memories, watching the rodeo queens at the Bucking Horse Sale. After seeing the queen carry the American flag she knew that was something she wanted to do and someone she wanted to be. Just by that pretty smile, fast horse, and glittery clothes, that queen made an impact on her life. This anonymous queen became a huge role model. Every time Miranda goes into the arena, she thinks of that queen and does her best to imitate her. That is the special thing about rodeo queens, they don’t even know the impact they are making on the people in the stands of the rodeo arena. Miranda wants to be Miss Teen Rodeo Montana because she wants little girls to look up to her and she wants to be that positive role model. Being this role model while representing the sport she loves would be the greatest accomplishment in the world.
