Miss Rodeo Idaho 2019 Sara Weekes
Sara Weekes earned the title Miss Rodeo Idaho 2019 in July 2018 in conjunction with the 103rd Snake River Stampede. In partnership with the Snake River Stampede, Stampede for the Cure, and a dedicated group of sponsors, Sara is honored to serve as an Ambassador for professional rodeo and the State of Idaho.
Sara resides in Meridian, Idaho. In December of 2017, Sara became the first individual in her family to graduate from college. Sara holds a Bachelor of Science in Health Science with an emphasis in Informatics and Information Management from Boise State University. She plans to complete her Registered Health Information Technician certification, which will allow Sara to be an advocate in healthcare for Idahoan’s.
As a youth, Sara, competed through the Idaho State Horse Show Association, FFA, and her local 4H group. She also has shown horses in AQHA, competed in the Idaho Girls Rodeo Association and the Intermountain Professional Rodeo Association. She was awarded the 2016 Grand Champion Novice Showmanship and the 2014 Reserve Champion Novice Trail at the AQHA Novice Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada. When she is not competing with her horses, Too Gold to Invest (Elli) and Goose, Sara enjoys breakaway roping, goat tying, steer daubing competitive swimming, snowboarding, wakeboarding, and training for fitness competitions, she is an avid hockey fan, cheering for the Las Vegas Golden Knights and the Minnesota Wild.
Sara was raised to be conscious of her community and how she might play an active role in making it better.
Because of this she has dedicated much of her time to volunteering in the community and is excited that Miss Rodeo Idaho, Inc. is partnered with Stampede for the Cure - an organization that helps woman receive low-cost or free mammograms for early detection and prevention of breast cancer.
She is passionate about representing their cause as her own family has been impacted with breast cancer and early detection served a vital role in their recovery.
Sara will represent Idaho in the Miss Rodeo America pageant during the WNFR in Las Vegas in December 2019.
