Competitors get points based on where they place on each DAY of a competition.
For example, you get 10 points if you finish first for the day, 9 points for a 2nd place finish, etc…
For each cowboy/cowgirl, the top 12 days/finishes from the regular season is their point total heading into the State Finals Rodeo.
If a cowboy/cowgirl has earned points on more than 12 occasions, the worst of their finishes are dropped from their point total.
That point total, combined with whatever points they earned at the State Finals Rodeo, will determine their final point total for the season.
The top 4 in each event at the end of the season, are invited to compete at the High School National Finals Rodeo, to be held July 14-20 at Rock Springs.
Below is the current top 4 in each event, through the end of the Laramie rodeo.
