Biography

Twenty-year-old Brittney Chomistek is the fourth generation raised on family land north east of Medicine Hat.

This third year, Bachelor of Elementary Education student has a goal of teaching grade one in a rural school. Brittney volunteers as head coach for a junior high boys' basketball team, does agricultural classroom presentations, and is the Youth Ambassador and spokesperson for the south east Alberta United Way.

Diaries

December 2017

December was an exciting month, filled with neon lights, glitz, sequins and most importantly, watching 9 Canadian Cowboys represent our country at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas!

I arrived in Vegas one week early with multiple suitcases, ready to attend all the Miss Rodeo America Pageant Events. I have to say, it was much more relaxing being an observer of a pageant than a contestant! The competition was very strong and I am pleased to congratulate Keri Sheffield, Miss Rodeo Florida, who rose to the top as the newly crowned Miss Rodeo America. I enjoyed getting to know Keri at many of the WNFR and sponsor Brittney Chomistek and Zeke Thurstonevents - and I can’t wait to meet up with her again in January.

Nothing can compare to the Canadian pride I felt each night, as the announcer introduced Zeke Thurston carrying our national flag into the arena and leading our Canadian contingency in the grand entry. These nine athletes were ranked amongst the top 15 cowboys in the World in each of their events, and the Canadian fans waved their flags with enthusiasm when our cowboys competed! December also celebrated a National Day of the Horse, which I thought was very appropriate as Virgil, the amazing Canadian grey horse owned by C5 Rodeo, was recognized as the 2017 PRCA Bareback Horse of the Year!

Throughout the WNFR, Emma Deicke Miss Rodeo Australia, and I were involved in many promotional activities. We helped host the MGM Hotel and Casino’s Gold Buckle Viewing Theatre during rodeo performances, presented Montana Silversmith Go-Round Buckles at South Point each night, and signed hundreds of autograph sheets at the Roper, Wrangler, Stetson and Montana Silversmiths tradeshow booths. I loved the opportunity to meet with many rodeo fans, while promoting a few of the Miss Rodeo Canada program sponsors. My travels throughout the year would not be possible without the generosity of these major supporters. Be sure to follow the Miss Rodeo Canada Facebook page to see posts featuring these and other MRC donors.

After returning home from the WNFR, I was able to enjoy a relaxing Christmas in Medicine Hat surrounded by loved ones and wonderful friends. I am so grateful for everyone who helped make 2017 such an amazing year for me and I wish everyone the very best in the next year. I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings!

November 2017

The 2017 Canadian Finals Rodeo is an event I will never forget. I am Brittney Chomistek the newly crowned Miss Rodeo Canada 2018 and I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to represent the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association for the next year.

I would like to begin by thanking the Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede for allowing me Crowning - Brittney Chomistekthe experience and opportunity to represent such a great organization during the Miss Rodeo Canada Competition. It was an honour to once again wear your crown and banner for the pageant in Edmonton.

The MRC Competition leading up to the Canadian Finals Rodeo was a whirlwind of activities as we were judged on horsemanship, public speaking, rodeo exam, personal interviews and modeling. The week was filled with many special memories and wonderful friendships. Emily, Kyla, Michele, and Caylee, I enjoyed getting to know each of you a bit better and I had so much fun with all of you at the same time.

November was a month consisting of many endings and new beginnings. On November 10, 2017, I walked in to the Northland’s Coliseum representing the Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede for the last time. That night, at the Friday rodeo performance, I was fortunate to have been crowned Miss Rodeo Canada 2018 and I am so excited about this new beginning. The 44th Canadian Finals Rodeo was quite emotional as it was the end of an era, with Championship Sunday being the final CFR performance ever to be hosted at Northlands in Edmonton. During the closing ceremony, past rodeo competitors and champions were invited into the arena to join the celebration as 13 Canadian Champions were introduced at the Coliseum for the final time. Even though this tradition ended, I am looking forward to seeing where our 45th Canadian Finals will be hosted in 2018.  

Congratulations to our 2017 Canadian Professional Rodeo Champions!
