Linwood resident up
for title of rodeo queen
Julie Carden, Linwood, is one of 12 1999 Shrine Rodeo Queen contestants for the 40th annual Abdallah Shrine Rodeo, which will be Aug. 19-21 in Kansas City, Mo.
The queen will be crowned Aug. 19, at the start of the rodeo. She will then be qualified to advance to the Miss Rodeo Kansas competition later this year.
Each contestant is judged on horsemanship and riding ability, poise and personality. The winner will receive a hand-tooled saddle and a traditional crown and sash.
