ELK'S YOUTH RODEO
45 WEST BRUNDAGE
THE TWENTYTH ANNUAL SHERIDAN, WYOMING,
ELK'S YOUTH RODEO was held on
August 25 and 26, 2012. The
rodeo's 26 events attracted contestants
from Alberta, Montana, Oregon, North
Dakota, Idaho, Colorado, South Dakota,
Nebraska, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming.
Three arenas, running at the same
time, were used to accommodate the 716
entrees each day. This is up from last
years 604 entries each day. We were
concerned that with the number of
ranchers either burned out or droughted
out we might be down on our number of
entries this year. We are very pleased
with the turn out.
Cash and awards of $68,000.00 were
presented to contestants ages 17 and
These consisted of cash and
scholarships of $12,200.00 and awards
valued at $55,800.00.
