National Champions Crowned at National Junior High Finals Rodeo

After an intense week of competition in June, that featured more than 940 contestants from all across the US, Canada, and Australia, the 2013 National Junior High Finals Rodeo National Champions were crowned at Red Rock Park in Gallup, New Mexico. Sixty-one Canadians from four Western provinces competed and while no Canadian emerged as a champion this year, they more than held their own in what might prove to be the biggest rodeo of their lives.
