Miss Rodeo Nebraska 2018 – Kristin Kohmetscher

Kristin Kohmetscher is Miss Rodeo Nebraska 2018.

The Lawrence woman was crowned in June of 2017 during the first performance of the Buffalo Bill Rodeo in North Platte. Kohmetscher won the categories of horsemanship, appearance, written test, speech and personality following four days of competition.

Her prizes include thousands of dollars in scholarships (including a two-year, renewable full tuition scholarship to Mid-Plains Community College), a tiara, a saddle, a buckle, chaps, tack and jewelry, among many other items.

“I want to use the time God has given me to help others realize their worth and potential,” said Kohmetscher. “I believe each individual possesses a unique set of talents and passions that should be supported and utilized.”

Kohmetscher graduated from Blue Hill High School in 2010 then went on to attend the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Many of her extracurricular activities lent themselves to her field of study. She was an officer for the student chapters of both the American Association of Equine Practitioners and the American Association of Bovine Practitioners.

Kohmetscher also enjoys playing intramural sports, volunteering for her county fair, riding horses, giving riding lessons, roping, spending time on her family’s ranch, reading, drawing and anything musical. Her parents are Duane and (the late) Laurie Kohmetscher of Lawrence. (Image by KC Creations Photography, Burwell, NE)
