Farm Credit Services Challenge issued to high school rodeo


An exciting challenge has been issued by Farm Credit Services of America to the 20X High School Rodeo Team.

When the team members compete in 20X High School Rodeo in the new Summit Arena at The Monument in Rapid City, SD, they will be competing for much more than the first-place buckle. If they can 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.

This money will be donated by Farm Credit of Services of America to the South Dakota High School Rodeo Association to be used by the National Team members for travel expenses at the National High School Rodeo Finals. “The Farm Credit Services challenge is a very generous contribution to South Dakota’s best rodeo athletes, and it will add additional excitement to the already thrilling rodeo,” according to Ann Sundermann, Executive Secretary of SDHSRA.

After reviewing the records from the past five years of 20X High School Rodeo performances, the time or marking that has been set would have been reached in each event 50 percent of the time. Here are the markings or times that would need to be met or exceeded for the SDHSRA to obtain the funds.
