As a family, be prepared to make a decision about Nationals if you qualify. This year the National High School Finals is held in Rock Springs, Wyoming from July 14-20.

  • ***The 2024 NHSFR Contestant Entry Form must be signed by both parents with a Commissioner of Oaths (we will have a Commissioner at the rodeo on Sunday). If one parent will not be at the finals, you need to get the form signed in advance.
  • Please review the price sheet for Nationals – stalls, camping, golf cart rental, etc.
  • National Qualifier Jackets must also be purchased on Sunday. **If you or your siblings have Nationals jackets, especially larger ones, please bring them to the finals (sign ups in the Agriplex on Sunday) – this will help others choose the correct size.**


There is a lot of information about Nationals – all qualifiers receive a package with everything you need but you can also find most of the information on the NSHRA Website.
