The Greeley Stampede, Estes Park Rooftop Rodeo, and Larimer County Fair & PRCA Rodeo have partnered to recognize the rodeo contestant that earns the most money combined at their three rodeos in 2017.

The recipient will win the inaugural Rodeo 34 Award, receive a $3,000 gas & grocery gift card, and a championship pure beaver custom cowboy hat courtesy of Trent Johnson and Greeley Hat Works valued at $1,650. The Rodeo 34 Award recipient will also be featured during the 2017 PRCA Mountain States Circuit Finals at The Ranch, Larimer County’s Fairgrounds and Events Complex in Loveland, Colorado on October 27th and 28th.

The new alliance, named after the highway that connects the three rodeos, was created to help promote the sport of rodeo.
