Did you know that the first Miss Teepee Creek Stampede was crowned in 2009? That is right, Teepee Creek started the queen program 12 years ago by Monica Benoit, who was Miss Grande Prairie Stompede 2007 and ran for Miss Rodeo Canada. Monica and everyone working behind the scenes were the start of a wonderful program. The program was originally started for youth 14-17. The program now runs for ages 15-18 which would open the doors to Teepee Creek Stampede having a Queen run for Miss Rodeo Canada. The current Miss Teepee Creek Stampede is Megan Pettyjohn.
The Miss Teepee Creek Stampede Committee holds an annual fundraiser, first known as the “Diamond Dinner”, all proceeds from the fundraiser go towards the Miss Teepee Creek Endowment Fund, helping continue on the legacy of Miss Teepee Creek for years to come. As time has progressed, the MTPC Queen Committee started a $500 scholarship for each Queen. This scholarship is still a great part of the Queen Program today, but now it has grown to $1,000. Our hope is to continue this program for years to come as all of our past Queens have utilized their scholarships to attend post secondary school.
Holding the Miss Teepee Creek Stampede title is no small task, ask any of our past Queens. The competition itself is focused on several components that the girls will actively use throughout their reign and well into their future careers and life. The contestants each participate in horsemanship, public speaking, modeling, photogenic, personal interviews and they write an exam.
It is a great thing to watch a young girl blossom into a young woman, and it is easy to say that each and every girl that has gone through the Queen program has shown exceptional growth. Be it in their self-confidence, public speaking, or their networking skills, the sky is really the limit. These young women have made for outstanding ambassadors for not only the Teepee Creek Stampede but for the rodeo heritage.
The 2021 Miss Teepee Creek Stampede Queen Applications are currently open until May 5th, 2021. If you know a young woman who would make a great ambassador, be sure to encourage her to apply!

Our committee did not sit back this last year and take a break. It was an opportunity to regroup, rethink, and restructure in order to be prepared for changing restrictions and announcements. We are more than ready to get to officially announce a schedule that follows AHS regulations to ensure safety of fans, sponsors, & contestants. Some of the highlights of what we have accomplished this year:
LOOKING FORWARD TO JULY 8-11, 2021!!
Same address with a fresh new look. We don’t take this down time for granted in Teepee Creek. This was a chance to do some much-needed updates to our website and it is now ready to go. Some of our Wagonmasters are missing the write-ups so if you have a program from one of those years, please contact us so we can get those all filled in.
All of the publications from the past Northern Horizon editions will also be available in the Blog tab. We understand that not everyone has social media accounts so wanted the information available for everyone.
Another tab this is very handy for people looking for information about Teepee Creek is the COMMUNITY tab. Find out about the school, cemetery, general store, landfill hours, Sorkenville, Firehall, County Councilor, 4H Club and more. We are looking to add even more information to this page with products, services, and home-based businesses that are from the people in this direct area. If you have something to add, please contact Corry Stark at 780-518-4283 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Turn Back Time...the Stampede wasn’t always about just rodeo events:
Lundie McKenzie (wife of Jack McKenzie) – 1934 rodeo was billed as aquatic because it was held partially at the dams. Can’t forget about Stan Warren’s plane (25 cents a ride), bathing beauty contest, and the tennis court.
