Points and Awards

Thanks to the generosity and support from our sponsors as well as a thriving association CJRA was able to present $65,000 in awards and prizes in 2013.


Regular Season:

- Points are awarded to first through tenth place in each event at each rodeo:

1st = 48, 2nd = 38, 3rd = 32, 4th = 26, 5th = 20, 6th = 14, 7th = 10, 8th = 8, 9th = 6, 10th = 4 (total points awarded in each event = 206)

- Buckles are awarded to first place in each event at each rodeo (some exceptions apply - see rule book for details). The contestant has the option to choose a cash payout in lieu of a buckle.

- All Around awards are presented to one girl and one boy in each age division at each rodeo. All Around points are the accumulation of all points earned in each event by a contestant.

- Points are accumulated throughout the season and the top ten point earners in each event are invited to compete in a two or three go-rounds finals rodeo usually held over Thanksgiving Weekend.  

- To qualify for an event at finals a contestant must compete in that event at at least 5 or 55% of the rodeos and received at least one qualifying time or score in that event.



- Points are awarded to the first through tenth place each go-around in each event at the finals as per point system used at day rodeos. In addition, average points are awarded at one-and-one half (1 1/2) times the go-around. The average is determined by the fastest total time on two or three (2 or 3) goes or the highest score on two or three rides. Finals buckles are awarded to the average winner in each event.

- The average points and the points from each go earned at the finals are added to the regular season points to determine the year end average winners. - Year end awards are presented to the first through tenth place with first place winning a saddle. Seniors also win a scholarship.

- Saddles are also presented to the All Around Champions (one boy and one girl in each age division). Reserve Champions are also presented awards.
