State Rodeo Queen Alyssa Volkmer To Perform At Wild West Frogfest
Alyssa Volkmer of Herkimer, the New York High School Rodeo Association’s “Rodeo Queen”, will be performing at the Big Frog 104 Wild West Frogfest Saturday at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds. WKTV reports that Alyssa will then be heading to Wyoming in July representing New York State for the title of “National Rodeo Queen”. Earning the state’s “Rodeo Queen” title was a rigorous process.
The process was four weeks long, on the weekends. Among other things, It included a horsemanship pattern, an interview and a two minute speech. “The topic was talk about your state your country or anything western. My title was ‘Women in Rodeo: Past, Present and Future’ and it goes into how people feel about how women don’t play a major role in the sport but we actually do and we have transformed the sport into how it is today,” said Volkmer.
We are looking forward to seeing Alyssa at Frogfest and hope to personally wish her the best of luck in Wyoming!
