2018 Miss NPRA Baylee Crawford

Baylee Crawford

The multi-colored barn roof means you are at the right place. From make shift sleds in Winter to strawberry stained fingers in Summer, there is always room for adventure on the family farm.

Baylee Crawford, a Saint Helens High School graduate, is the 19-year-old daughter of Tom and Jeanne Crawford who loves to be active in her community. On Saturday, September 23, Ms. Crawford was crowned the 2018 Miss Northwest Professional Rodeo Association (NPRA) at the final performance of the NPRA Finals, held annual in Prineville, Oregon.

In addition to the title, Baylee won the People’s Choice, Appearance, Personality, Speech, and Knowledge awards after competing in the three-day pageant, which included multiple interviews, horsemanship competition, and other activities.

Baylee participated in the 4-H horse program for 8 years with her 16-year-old quarter horse gelding, Tee. She recently represented as the Columbia County Fair and Rodeo Princess in 2014 and 2015 and was then crowned Miss Teen Rodeo Oregon for 2016.

She spent all year traveling to various events and rodeos some as far as Florida and Las Vegas, but enjoyed the welcoming smiles of being present at her hometown fair and rodeo.

When not working, Baylee enjoys being by the Columbia River, going on adventures with her two dogs, Bone and Shredder, and sometimes likes to treat herself to pizza and frozen yogurt while getting lost in a good book or movie.

Baylee says, “being selected as the 2018 Miss Northwest Professional Rodeo Association will allow me to be the face of the NPRA's athletes and animals for the year. It will grant me the opportunity to educate others about the sport of rodeo, while admiring the beauty of the Northwest along the way.”
