iHigh.com is the official video streaming partner for The World's Largest Rodeo, which will be held Sunday, July 17th through Saturday, July 23rd in Gillette, Wyoming.
CAM-PLEX in Gillette will play host to the crowning event in high school rodeo, as contestants from 41 states, five Canadian provinces and Australia vie for national titles, assorted prizes and their share of thousands of dollars in college scholarships. An estimated 1,500 contestants will take part in the 63rd annual NHSFR.
Action at the event is non-stop. Rodeo performances are conducted twice each day – at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. The top twenty contestants in each event then advance to the final round on Saturday, July 23 at 7:00 PM (MST) to determine who will walk away with those coveted championship buckles. Boy's events at the NHSFR include bareback riding, bull riding, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, team roping and cutting. Girl's events include breakaway roping, barrel racing, pole bending, goat tying, cutting, team roping and the queen's contest. Boys and girls compete together in team roping, but are separate in all other events.
In addition to the rodeo action, numerous events are scheduled throughout the week – keeping contestants and their families busy throughout the day. States may compete in a volleyball tournament, shooting competitions and more. A western trade show also offers a plethora of western-themed merchandise, including everything from western art to ropes and saddles. Both cowboys and city slickers will find something to catch their interest at the show.
