Montana High School Rodeo Association


The Montana High School Rodeo Association (MHSRA) is one of the 41 states, 5 Canadian provinces, and Australia that is involved in the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA)

Founded in 1947 by Claude Mullins, there are currently 12,500 students in the NHSRA competing in over 1,100 sanctioned rodeos every year. MHSRA members compete at the state level for local recognition and the top four contestants in each event then qualify to compete in the National High School Finals Rodeo held in July. At the NHSFR over 1,500 contestants compete for national titles, awards and scholarships. By being a student member of the MHSRA, contestants also have an opportunity to be awarded college scholarships and scholarship assistance for continuing their educational careers. The NHSRA is an independent student athletic association that relies on the financial assistance of sponsors. For more information about the MHSRA, follow the links on the left and contact any of the directors or secretary.

FOR THE 2016-2017 SEASON ONLY:  The $30 State Dues on Jr. High and High School memberships will be waived.  High School memberships will be $124, and the Jr. High memberships will be $80.  The new membership applications are now up under "Forms".  Jr. High and High School memberships will start being processed beginning August 1, 2016.




VERY, VERY IMPORTANT!  Phone entry times are for help finding Partners and helping with any problems entering only. Call in and Call Back times have been shortened from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm. Online entries will be open 20 days before the phone entries, so there is plenty of time to enter.  If you are unsure about online entries, call Lisa at 925-2252, or Laurie at 464-2686, and they will walk you through it.  If you Turn Out of a rodeo, you will be marked as "ineligible" on Monday morning, and you will be unable to enter rodeos until you get that Turn Out paid.  The State Offices will be able to take credit card payments for those Turn Outs, until 4:00 pm on that Monday.  ALSO - IF YOU ARE INELIGIBLE, YOUR NAME, EVENT POINTS, AND ALL AROUND POINTS WILL NOT SHOW UP ON THE WEBSITE.  YOUR NAME WILL ALSO DISAPPEAR OUT OF THE RODEO RESULTS.  YOUR TIMES/SCORES, AND POINTS FOR THAT RODEO WILL BE THERE, BUT WITHOUT YOUR NAME.  AS SOON AS YOU ARE ELIGIBLE, THEY WILL BE BACK UP ON THE WEBSITE.

FOR ONLINE ENTRIES - Hit the "Online Signup" button at the top right corner on the Home Page.  For Jr. High entries, select "Jr. High".  For High School Entries, select whichever District you are from.  If you are District 2, and select that you are from District 5, your name WILL NOT show up.  You then need to put in your membership number.  If your number is MT0002, you only type in "2".  Your District number and membership number are all listed under the "Eligibility" list. After you select what District you are from, and entered your membership number, hit "Submit".  Your name and email will appear, along with "That's me!".  Click on "That's Me!", and below that will appear all the rodeos that are open for online entries.  All the rodeos open for online entries will show up no matter what District you are from. Click on the rodeo you want to enter, and then you will mark the events you want to enter at that rodeo.  REMEMBER, only 1 partner can enter a team in the team roping and ribbon roping.  If you try to enter in the team roping or ribbon roping, and it won't let you, that means someone has already entered you.  When you have all your events checked, at the bottom of the page is the "Save" button.  Save your entries, and do the same for the other rodeos you want to enter. Once you have entered a rodeo, that rodeo will disappear to you, and you will be unable to go in to that rodeo and enter again.  If you forgot to enter an event, you will have to call in on phone entry day to enter that event.
