Adam caught a calf in the Calf Scramble and receives a check to buy a steer to raise in FFA for this upcoming year!!!! And then he comes back to the 2016 Houston Rodeo to show the animal he raises!!!
Oak Ridge HS Senior, Kelli Sharp who is the current ORHS FFA President, recently won Overall Grand Champion Heifer at the October 12, 2014 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Calf Scramble Progress Show held in Humble, TX.
In order to participate, a student must have previously (in the spring of the same year) caught a calf at the HLSR Livestock Show and Rodeo while representing ORHS FFA. They are given a voucher certificate worth $1500 and must purchase either a steer or heifer to raise for the entire year until the following rodeo season. At that time, the student must come back and participate and show that animal with HLSR.
Only those participants who were calf scramble winners were eligible to show at this venue. Kelli not only won Exotic Grand Champion Division Heifer, she then came back to win the entire show! Kelli received numerous awards such as 2 HLSR belt buckles, $500 scholarship, leather halter, embroidered bag, and custom HLSR vest.
