Miss Burwell Rodeo

Your 2016 Miss Burwell Rodeo is Joeli Walrath.  Joeli is the 18 year old daughter of Jamie and Jaci Walrath of Ashton. Joeli is a 2016 graduate of Loup City High School and is currently a freshman at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln studying animal science. She is also a Husker Equestrian and a member of the UNL Rodeo Club.  Joeli is a lifetime member of the AQHA and a 4-H horse judge.  Joeli enjoys traveling the state representing Burwell, Nebraska; discussing the beauty of the sandhills, Calamus Reservoir, the community of Burwell and all it has to offer, and of course Nebraska’s Big Rodeo! Her favorite part of being Miss Burwell Rodeo is being able to inspire little cowboys and cowgirls to grow in the western way of life, with faith and family.  In her free time Joeli enjoys working with her horses, painting, cooking and helping out on her family’s farm.  She would like to invite one and all to Burwell the last weekend in July for Nebraska’s Big Rodeo!

The 2017 pageant will be held July 21st & 22nd, 2017 in conjunction with the Little Miss Burwell and Nebraska’s Big Rodeo Calcutta in Burwell.
