(Miami, OK) - The American Cowboy Rodeo Association (ACRA) has named Rodeo Miami as the 2012 Rodeo of the Year. The Top 20 contestants in each event vote on the annual awards which are announced during the ACRA Finals held in Tulsa. This is the third consecutive year that this regional organization has recognized the Miami event.

Rodeo Miami, which drew a record 430 contestants, is a combined effort of the Ottawa County Fair Board, Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College and the City of Miami. Vance Ford Lincoln Mercury of Miami is the title sponsor of Rodeo Miami. GRDA, Buffalo Run Casino and Quapaw Casino were presenting sponsors in 2012.
