Models and scholarship winners hit the runway Tuesday at the Cowgirls Live Forever Style Show, a San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo event.

KSAT 12's resident cowgirl, Ursula Pari, took the reins as the mistress of ceremonies for the 13th annual show, which has raised $1.6 million in scholarships over 10 years.

This year's Cowgirl honoree is Bonnie Korbel, whose family has long ranched in Texas.

"I am really touched and moved that they're here. And it really is for Texas students, for their scholarships. Children and scholarships are very important to me," Korbel said.

The honoree of the event is chosen based on her independence, courage and resilience as a woman who preserves our Western heritage.

The rodeo kicks off Feb. 8.
