Farm Credit Services of America issues challenge to 2012 20X Extreme High School Rodeo Team

Farm Credit Services of America (FCSA) has issued an exciting challenge to the 20X Extreme High School Rodeo Team.

When team members compete in the 2012 20X Extreme High School Rodeo at the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo in Rapid City, SD on Jan. 29, they will be competing for much more than a first place buckle. If they meet or exceed the set challenge scores, they can win for their national team, $100 per each of the 10 scheduled events for a total of $1,000.

Money donated by FCSA to the South Dakota High School Rodeo Association (SDHSRA) to be used by the National Team members for travel expenses at the 2012 National High School Rodeo Finals.

“The Farm Credit Services 20X Extreme Challenge is a very generous contribution to South Dakota’s best rodeo athletes, and it will add additional excitement to the already thrilling rodeo,” stated Ann Sundermann, Executive Secretary of SDHSRA.

After reviewing the records from the past four years of 20X Extreme Rodeo performances, the time or marking that has been set would have been reached in each event 50 percent of the time.
