The National Junior High Finals rodeo is underway in Lebanon, TN and continues through Saturday.

Three young Cowboys from the Laramie area are among those competing this week.

State Champion Colter Nunn, state champion Kayson Dory and qualifier Kaden Berger are trying to make the top 20 in their respective events to qualify for Saturday's championship round.

Nunn is the Wyoming State Champion Jr. High Chute Dogger and Light Rifle Champion. He is also the Wyoming Reserve Champion Boy's Breakaway Roper.

Dory is the Wyoming State Champion in Saddle Bronc Steer Riding.

Berger qualified with his partner Haiden Thompson in team roping.

All three are part of the 12th annual National Junior High Finals Rodeo. It features roughly 1,000 contestants from 43 states, five Canadian provinces and Australia. This is the world's largest junior high rodeo. Contestants are vying for more than $75,000 in prizes and more than $100,000 in college scholarships.
