As one of the top rodeos in the nation, the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Rodeo recognized 20 Spanish Fork students in Nebo School District for their success in the Rodeo Reading Challenge.

The Fiesta Days Rodeo Committee kicked off the Fiesta Days Rodeo Reading Challenge in February with assemblies and a lineup consisting of Nick Hanks, Seth Perrins, Dale Robinson, and Kevin Parker, along with the Fiesta Days Rodeo Queen, Lindsey Ivie, and Diamond Fork Buckaroo Rodeo Queen, Morgan Ivie. During each assembly, the students learned about rodeo events by playing some games.  Students were challenged to see if they could tie three sets of shoes in one minute, which is similar to the tie-down roping event where contestants compete for the fastest time.  The students were also challenged to see who could balance five cowboy hats on their head and run around the barrels. 

The purpose of the reading challenge is to encourage students to read more during the month of March. Around 6,245 Spanish Fork elementary students accepted the challenge. Nebo students’ combined reading total reached 2,8 million minutes, 47,154 hours, or 1,965 days. To participate,  students turned in their reading minutes to their teacher and each school selected two random winners. The two student readers at each elementary school were announced at the Fiesta Days Rodeo in Spanish Fork on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. These winning students received tickets to the Fiesta Days Rodeo, Justin boots, Wrangler jeans, and a Resistol cowboy hat.
