Megan Mitchell, an eighth-grade student at Trigg County Middle School, has earned a position on the Kentucky State National Junior High rodeo team and will travel with fellow teammates to Gallup, N.M., from June 24-30 for the 8th Annual National Junior High Finals Rodeo. Mitchell will compete in barrel racing, pole bending and ribbon roping.

Featuring more than 1,000 contestants from 47 states, Canadian provinces and Australia, the National Junior High Finals is the world’s largest junior rodeo. In addition to competing for more than $75,000 in prizes, NJHFR contestants will also be vying for more than $100,000 in college scholarships and the chance to be named National Junior High Finals Rodeo National Champion.

To earn this title, contestants must finish in the top 20 after two go-rounds of intense competition before advancing to Saturday’s final championship performance, which will be televised nationally as part of the “Cinch Town Tour” telecast series.
