Spanish Fork Rodeo Teams Up with Local Schools with Champion Rodeo Reading Challenge

Nebo School District is excited to partner with the Champion Rodeo team to challenge our students in the Spanish Fork area to read.

Spanish Fork Rodeo Committee approached Nebo School District to team up for a Champion Rodeo Reading Challenge. Wayne Andersen, Steve Money, and now Nick Hanks met with community relations administrator, Lana Hiskey, and all the local elementary school principals to organize a win/win situation. Spanish Fork City secured the Champion Challenge Rodeo where the top cowboys in the nation will come to compete right here in Spanish Fork on June 3, 2017. The elementary schools designed their Reading Challenge around the Nebo District’s “Choose2matter” theme.

The Champion Reading Challenge stared this week with 2017 Miss Rodeo Queen, McKenna Hales, from Morgan, Utah, along with Kevin Higley who is the barrel man for the Champion Challenge Rodeo this year out of Ogden, Utah. Members of the Rodeo committee will supported the elementary assemblies as well.

The top student readers will be announced June 3 at the 2017 Wrangler Champions Challenge Rodeo in Spanish Fork. The Champions Challenge features the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association's best contestants competing on the best stock. The challenge is a television event and will be broadcast in June. These winning students will receive tickets to the rodeo, Justin boots, and other western clothing items as well as be involved in the opening ceremonies.

Congratulations to Julie Cranmer for answering this week's "Where are we Wednesday?" challenge sponsored by Wiggy Wash.
