Student Athlete of the Month

One of the most well-received programs in the National High School Rodeo Association, the Professional’s Choice Student Athlete of the Month program began in September 1999.


The program rewards one girl and one boy each month with a Professional’s Choice Air Ride Saddle Pad and qualifies each monthly winner for two $1,000 scholarships (one boys and one girls) to be awarded at the end of the rodeo season. To be eligible for the honor, students must submit an application to the NHSRA national office in Denver.


The application includes questions about the extracurricular activities, volunteerism and goals of each applicant. As part of the application process, each applicant must also submit a letter of recommendation as well as a 150-word essay.


Winners are featured each month in the NHSRA Times.


** Hint** The sooner you get yours in the better. Early submission only comes in sporadically so you have improved changes of being selected!
