We are looking for standout individuals who are interested in the enhancement, preservation, and continuation of the World’s Oldest Rodeo® and western traditions.

Two $1,000 scholarships and two $500 scholarships will be offered, with four ambassadors to be selected through an interview and application process. High School juniors and seniors are eligible for the scholarships. The Junior Ambassador package includes the required qualifications, duties, what the Junior Ambassador team members will receive, and an application that lists areas of interest.

Available areas of interest include:
rodeo production  ●  event planning/coordination  ●  animal health  ●  sports medicine  ●  contestant services  ●  rodeo administration  ●  sales  ●  marketing  ●  fashion/merchandise  ●  customer relations  ●  finance  ●  traffic control  ●  security  ●  hospitality/food services  ●  graphic design  ●  electrical  ●  website/social media management  ●  facility maintenance  ●  fleet maintenance  ●  audio/visual (i.e., sound system, video screen/camera operations, fiber optics, and radio).

Thank You, Mentors!

A big thank you to our mentors, who generously donated their time and wisdom to help our Junior Ambassadors learn the ropes of our World’s Oldest Rodeo! They shared information on rodeo production, fashion/merchandising, security, website/social media management, audio/visual, event planning/coordination, rodeo administration, customer relations, hospitality, animal health, sales, finance, graphic design, sports medicine, marketing, facility maintenance, and fleet maintenance.

We couldn’t do this without you!
