A Sturgeon County girl is looking to make it onto the national rodeo stage.
Kyla Williams, 21, is from just outside of Gibbons and has the chance to become Miss Rodeo Canada this week.
"It would be amazing," said Williams. "I would love to represent our community and our country."
In 2015, she won Miss Rodeo Sundre, qualifying her for this year's competition.
The remaining five contestants are judged on horsemanship, public speaking, personal interview, rodeo knowledge and modeling.
"I have been studying since 2015. After 2015 it has always been my goal to go further and when you win the Miss Rodeo Canada title, you get to travel all over," added Williams.
The winner will be titled the Canadian Pro Rodeo Association Ambassador for 2018 and will be the face of rodeo across Canada, the United States and Australia.
Crowning of Miss Rodeo Canada will take place Friday at Northlands Coliseum in Edmonton before the Canadian Finals Rodeo.

Miss Rodeo Canada is also having a Fan's Choice Award, where you can vote for Williams by liking her picture on Facebook.
