Registration for this year's Rodeo Queen Contest is now closed.
Rodeo Queen Contest
The 25th Annual Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation Rodeo will be held August 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2023. This year our Queens Contest will be held in June to allow for rain dates and for the queens to help promote the Rodeo.
Jennifer was a 16-year-old Foley High school student who took her own life. Frances, Jennifer’s mother, describes her as a firecracker who was full of energy, who loved to go and do. Jennifer loved her horses and her rodeo family. She was an Alabama 4-H Pole Bending State Champion and an accomplished barrel racer. For over 25 years, we have held an annual rodeo and Queen’s contest in Jennifer’s memory in her hometown of Foley, AL.
While the rodeo is to honor her memory, it is also the Foundation’s biggest fundraising event of the year. The Queen’s contest is held as a way to engage the young women in the local rodeo communities and create involvement with our philanthropy. This contest brings women of all ages together in this sport to uplift and support each other. The goal is to help grow, build, and teach upcoming generations what it looks like to support others while still working hard to achieve a goal.
