The Montana High School Rodeo Association (MHSRA) is one of the 41 states, 5 Canadian provinces,
and Australia that is involved in the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA)
Founded in 1947 by Claude Mullins, there are currently 12,500 students in the NHSRA competing in over 1,100 sanctioned rodeos every year. MHSRA members compete at the state level for local recognition and the top four contestants in each event then qualify to compete in the National High School Finals Rodeo held in July. At the NHSFR over 1,500 contestants compete for national titles, awards and scholarships. By being a student member of the MHSRA, contestants also have an opportunity to be awarded college scholarships and scholarship assistance for continuing their educational careers. The NHSRA is an independent student athletic association that relies on the financial assistance of sponsors. For more information about the MHSRA, follow the links on the left and contact any of the directors or secretary.
RAFFLE TICKET SALES INCENTIVE:
The top 2 ticket sales people for both the HS & JH division will each receive a pair of BEX Sunglasses.
NEW POINT SYSTEM - The MHSRA Board of Directors implemented a new point system effective immediately. You can now carry in your Top 15 rodeos to state for a maximum 150 points. This replaces the Top 7 rodeos that we have done the past several years. There will also be 160 points awarded at the state finals instead of 80 as in the past.
If anybody has any questions please reach out to one of your state directors.
