Wilson to compete in rodeo nationals

Red Oak’s Coy Wilson has qualified to compete at the world’s largest junior high rodeo.
Wilson, a seventh grade student at Red Oak Jr./Sr. High School, has earned a position on the Iowa State National Junior High rodeo team and will be traveling with his fellow teammates to Des Moines June 23 through 29 to compete at the 19th annual National Junior High Finals Rodeo (NJHFR) in saddle bronc and bulls competition.
Featuring roughly 1,200 contestants across 43 U.S. states, five Canadian provinces, and Australia and Mexico, the NJHFR is the world’s largest junior high rodeo.
In addition to competing for more than $80,000 in prizes, NJHFR contestants will also be competing for more than $200,000 in college scholarships and the chance to be named a National Junior High Finals Rodeo World Champion.
To earn this title, contestants must finish in the top 20, based on their combined times and scores in the first two go-rounds to advance to the finals round. World champions will then be determined based on their three go-round combined times and scores.
Added money for the optional jackpot has increased to $100,000 and is available to everyone at finals competition who enters the jackpot in their respective event.
The championship performance will be televised nationally as part of the Cinch High School Rodeo telecast on RFD-TV. Live broadcasts of all NJHFR performances will air on cowboychannelplus.com/. Performance times are at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. each day.
