D’Hanis High School class of 2016 graduate Mitchell Hutto, son of John Hutto and Julie Skiles, has earned a spot as a competitor in the National High School Finals Rodeo (NHSFR) in Gillette, Wyoming, at the CAM-PLEX event facility.
In the rodeo, which begins today and ends Saturday, Hutto will be competing in the steer wrestling event.
The rodeo, billed as “the world’s largest rodeo,” lives up to its name with more than 1,650 contestants from 43 states, five Canadian provinces, and Australia.
Competitors have the chance to win more than $200,000 in prizes, in addition to more than $350,000 in college scholarships and the chance to be named a NHSFR world champion.
In order to claim the NHSFR title, the competitor must finish in the top 20, based on combined scores and/or times in the first two rounds.
