Tripp County 4-Hers Prepare for State Finals


Tripp County will have a large showing of youth at the annual 4-H Rodeo Finals held in Fort Pierre on August 18, 19 & 20th. This will wrap up the 4-H rodeo season for the year, so youth will be working their hardest to earn the top place. There are four divisions in 4-H rodeo: Senior Boys, Senior Girls, Junior Boys and Junior Girls. Senior division ages are 14-18 and Junior division ages are 8-13.

There are two performances held, youth will either draw up on Friday evening/Sunday morning performance or Saturday morning/Saturday night performance. To determine who earned 1st, it’s based on an average of both performances, for this reason, they will be competing for the fastest, smoothest run for most consistency in the timed events and in the rough stock they will be competing for the highest score.
