Lexi Hicks was announced as the 2016 Frontier Days Ambassador. The Swift Current Ag and Ex Association made the announcement in a release today.

She is the 17-year-old daughter of Jason and Karla Hicks. She grew up on the back of a horse on a family ranch just southwest of Mortlach Sk.
She was able to start rodeo through the Saskatchewan Junior High School Association (SHSRA) at the young age of 12, eventually making her way up through the ranks to qualify for the National Junior High finals in breakaway roping, goat tying and barrel racing, and managed to make it to the National High School Finals for the past two years in barrel racing.
Hicks was the SHSRA Queen for two years, and last summer as we travelled down to the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA) Finals and was the first Saskatchewan Queen to make the top 10 in the NHSRA Queens contest.
As part of being the SHSRA Queen, and now the Frontier Days Ambassador, she would like to help educate others on agriculture and the Western heritage.
Her greatest passion in life is agriculture. It is how she has been raised and what she loves. She looks forward to sharing the agricultural story while teaching the ways of being a rancher, farmer, and cowboy – all of which she finds so rewarding.
