The West Virginia High School Rodeo Association's intention is to promote high
school rodeo at the state level and encourage eligible students to participate in WVHSRA rodeos. This association promotes
the highest type of conduct and sportsmanship while at various rodeos and functions supporting WVHSRA. We strive to
keep our Western Heritage alive and active, while maintaining humane treatment to all live stock used during our rodeos.
The WVHSRA encourages all members to continue in school as a regularly enrolled student, and improve their education.
WVHSRA encourages members to further their education by offering a Scholarship Program.

History of the WVHSRA
The state of West Virginia, along with the National High School Rodeo Association, are
working together to give high school students the opportunity to be recognized for their talents and abilities. Claude
Mullins formed the NHSRA in 1947. As an educator, Claude realized the importance of teaching life skills, and making
sure those skills would be something the youth would carry with them throughout their entire lives. Although not recognized
by high school athletics, the NHSRA offers a rodeo program that sets high school rodeo apart from other varsity sports.
WVHSRA competes with 44 states as well as Australia and Canada. Our competitors represent many of the counties in West
Virginia. Not only do they represent their counties well, they also make the state of West Virginia very proud.
