JASPER COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — 65 Junior and senior high schoolers from across Indiana are competing for a spot in this year’s National Rodeo Finals.

On Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5 the students will compete in various rodeo events. They’re competing in Junior High School State Finals, which is held at the Jasper County Fairgrounds.

Event leaders said this competition is like any other sporting event. Students are required to train their minds and bodies but they're also required to train their animals.

National Director of the Indiana High School Rodeo Association, Angela Hoagland said this event is a sight to see.

“We hope that people come out and come and see the Rodeo and if you've got children, grandchildren that love horses and would like to compete we, would love to have them in our association,” said Hoagland.

The competition begins at 9 a.m. on Sunday, May 5. It’s free to the public.
