Each contestant may enter one extra event, in addition to those he/she qualified in. Contestants may NOT enter an event that they qualified to go to the HS/JHS National Finals Rodeo even if they choose not to attend. The Queen Contest is open to the 1st attendant to the queen.  2nd or 3rd attendant may fill in if 1st attendant is unable to attend. Team ropers and ribbon ropers, whose regular partners cannot attend, may pick another partner of their choice if that person team roped at his/her district, state or province finals and will not be team roping at the National Finals Rodeo. (Partner must be entered, no draw partners accepted)  A team roper who is picked up by a qualified roper may also enter one extra event. Only one extra event is allowed regardless of the number of events a contestant qualified in and must have competed in that event during the year.

    • State / Province Team - This is a mandatory field. For most of you it is the same state of residence, however there are some contestants who live in one state and compete for another, so we want to make sure we get the team points correct.

    • Team Roping Partner - Enter name of partner only if you are entered in the team roping.

    • Biography - This information is what will be used by the announcer while you are performing your event.

    • Draw Notes - Only enter information in this box if you have a special request, such as a need to be in a separate section from another contestant due to sharing a horse.

  9. Check-In Instructions - All contestants must check in before competing and before the end of the 1st go. Enter information in this box if there is a reason that you cannot meet this requirement.

In that case we will send a release form to them requiring their signature that must be returned to the SSIR secretary prior to the rodeo.
