Cowboy Capital Scholarship Shootout
Along with producing a first class professional rodeo, the mission of the CCPRA – a non-profit foundation – is to encourage the younger generation to further their education as they enjoy and appreciate the western way of life. In 2016, proceeds from the rodeo allowed the committee to give out over $10,000 in scholarship funds to deserving high school students. In a one of a kind event only found in Stephenville, the future stars of pro rodeo are invited to showcase their talents in a match, head to head formatted rodeo with $1,000 scholarships up for grabs. The Texas High School Rodeo Association Champion in each event from Region 3 and Region 10 (which both overlap the Stephenville area) have earned a spot in the 2017, 3rdannual Cowboy Capital Scholarship Shootout.
Rodeo fans will have the opportunity to cheer on these high school rodeo champions on Sunday, September 24, during the last performance of the PRCA rodeo. Right before each of the PRCA events, the Scholarship Shootout students will compete, with the winner of the match walking away a $1,000 scholarship!
