Miss Omak Stampede

The role of Miss Omak Stampede is more than a title. In 1935, Bert Robbins made history by being crowned the first Miss Omak Stampede. Every year since then, a deserving contestant has been chosen. Miss Omak Stampede serves as an ambassador for the “Western Way of Life.” Throughout her reign she will travel thousands upon thousands of miles, representing arguably the greatest sport in the world, Rodeo. Her travels take her across our beautiful Nation, and to wonderful events such as the; Pendelton Round-Up and the Calgary Stampede. Miss Omak Stampede, networks and invites Visiting Royalty from all over the USA to the Omak Stampede & World Famous Suicide Race.

Nataly Luna was born into a large, some would say, chaotic family which gave her a sense of home and
family that can never be swayed. In her formative years, she moved from Okanogan to Ephrata, though
a difficult time to move she had no trouble making friends. It made her adaptable to change and the
ability to make friends easily. She is thankful for the move, it gave her countless opportunities and clubs
from school which solidified her dreams of becoming a large animal Veterinarian. She has now moved
back to Omak.

Mackenzie Scott is a Senior at Liberty Bell High school and a Sophomore at Wenatchee Valley college.
She is a member of Washington State High School Rodeo Association competing in barrel racing and
pole bending. She plans to continue rodeoing after High school and pursue a degree in equine science
and veterinary medicine

Eryne Anderson is a Senior at Omak Highschool she has been riding horses since she was little. Outside
of Rodeo she plays for the varsity girls basketball team at school and after high school she plans to
