Dedicated to the development of sportsmanship, horsemanship, and character.
The purpose of the Alaska High School Rodeo Association (AKHSRA) and AK Junior High School Rodeo Association (AKJHSRA )is to promote high school and junior high rodeo on a statewide scale and work towards bringing statewide recognition to the sport of Rodeo. The AKHSRA and AKJHSRA strive to promote professional conduct and good sportsmanship at various rodeos events.
