Mission Statement
It is Michigan High School Rodeo Association’s intent to promote high school rodeo at the state level and encourage eligible students to participate at MHSRA rodeos. The association promotes the highest type of conduct and sportsmanship while at various rodeos. We strive to keep our Western heritage alive and active, while maintaining humane treatment of the animals we participate with. The MHSRA encourages students to further their education after high school with an aggressive Scholarship Program.

The MHSRA Senior Division is open to all students in grades 9-12. The Junior High Division is open to all students in grades 6-8. For specific event information, go to the Event page on this site.

The MHSRA rodeo season begins on August 1 of the calendar year and ends on July 31 of the following year. A new member can enroll anytime during the year. Applications for enrollment are available on this site.

The National High School Rodeo Association sponsors an annual National High School Finals Rodeo and National Junior High Finals Rodeo. Participants must qualify through their state rodeo association.

Associate MHSRA Memberships are available to the general public. This membership allows individuals to receive association communications and participate in association non-rodeo events, such as the Cowboy Prom. This membership is a non-voting membership. Please contact the association secretary for more information.

MHSRA does multiple fundraisers throughout the year, Wreath/Centerpiece Sales in fall, Gun Raffle Spring, Queen’s Auction at Mid-Winter Meeting and Senior Interview Live Auction at High School State Finals.
*Wreath/Centerpiece Sales/Gun Raffle
There are two fundraisers that members have a choice of which to participate in. Members are required to sell a total of 20 items between the two fundraisers.  They can sell 10 Wreath/Centerpieces and 10 Gun Raffle tickets, or 20 Wreath/Centerpieces, or 20 Gun Raffle Tickets.   A member may choose not to participate by paying $200.00 for these two fundraisers or 10 items  and paying $100.
As an incentive to participate in these 2 fundraisers, the top seller in each will receive 15% of their total sales above the requirement in the form of credit that may be used for entry fees at rodeos or their membership for the next year.  The second place seller receives 10%.  If either of the top 2 is a graduating senior and they do not use their credit by the end of the season, it will be credited to their scholarship account. 
Queen’s Auction at State Mid-Winter Meeting
The Queen’s Auction is to raise money for the incoming queen crowned at the High School State Finals to be used for items such as chaps, signs, and photos to be signed and handed out at Nationals and functions. All members are required to bring an item for the silent auction held at State Mid-Winter Meeting/Cowboy Prom.
Senior Interviews Auction at State Finals Rodeo
