Six days, ten events and three arenas set up the biggest youth rodeo ever. The annual International Finals Youth Rodeo (IFYR) is known as the richest youth rodeo in the world. Since 1993 high schoolers from all around the world have traveled to Shawnee, OK to compete for a chance at the prize money. This year, the IFYR gave away more than $250,000 to the top rodeo athletes. Over 1,000 entries were received and after two long-go’s and the finals, these are the champions.
