Junior DeLena Tomlinson has recently entered the 2017 Miss Rodeo Austin contest and is competing against five other contestants for the title.

The people’s choice voting ends on Jan. 15, but there is still time to vote.

“Voting ends on the 15th of January,” Tomlinson said. “To vote, go to the Rodeo Austin Facebook page and like the contestants photo.”

The live competition is Jan. 19-21, which will include horsemanship and tailoring skills.

“ The competition consists of horsemanship pattern, flag running, interviews, fashion shows, making leather dresses and modeling,” Tomlinson said. “It takes a lot of hard work and numerous hours, but I love it.”

DaLena’s sister, Hannah Tomlinson, was the rodeo queen in 2012 and DeLena wants to keep the title in her family.

“I decided to join the contest because I wanted to follow in my sister’s footsteps,” Tomlinson said. “I also have a chance of getting the $16,000 scholarship prize which would be awesome.”
