It is arguably the largest of all rodeos, in terms of the number of competitors, and Wyoming is hosting it.

The 2017 High School National Finals Rodeo will take place July 16-22 at the Cam-Plex in Gillette.

Competitors from roughly 40 US States, as well as several Canadian provinces and Australia, will try to win national championship belt buckles, saddles, and team titles.

Start times each day are at 9am and 7pm, except for the first day, which is evening only.

Everyone is guaranteed two runs in the event(s) they qualified for, and each will have one morning run and one evening run.

Round 1 starts on the evening of Sunday, July 16, and concludes around noon on Wednesday, July 19.

Round 2 starts on the evening of Wednesday, July 19, and concludes around noon on Saturday, July 22.

Competitors in Round 2, will go in reverse order from Round 1.

For example if you go late in Round 1, you will go early in Round 2, and vice-versa.

The championship short-go is scheduled for the evening of Saturday, July 22.

Only the top 20 competitors on 2 runs combined in their respective event will return.
