Local youth wins calf scramble at Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo

FORT WORTH – Lana Bell, of Cresson, a member of the Tarrant County 4-H, was among the winners in the Calf Scramble event during the Feb. 2 performance at the 117th edition of the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo.

Lana’s mother is Amy Bell. Lana’s award was sponsored by Amy and Trey Quinn, of Weatherford.

The Calf Scramble, which allows 16 students to compete at each of the 30 rodeo performances, has eight winners each performance. The young people are high school students out to catch and halter a calf with hopes of winning a $500 purchase certificate that will help buy a registered beef or dairy heifer for a yearlong 4-H or FFA project.

Winners must care for their animals throughout the year and return for the 2014 Stock Show to exhibit it in the Junior Heifer Show. Those who do the best job will be in line for scholarship funds when they enter college. Last year, scholarship grants were made to 85 young people totaling $143,500.

All entries receive a special T-shirt with their contestant number.  Participants who fail to catch a calf receive a certificate for a pair of Justin boots. Mrs Baird’s Bakeries and Justin Boots have sponsored this event for many years.

The 118th annual Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo will take place Jan. 17-Feb. 8, 2014, at the world-class Will Rogers Memorial Center. For information, call 817.877.2420 or visit www.fwssr.com.
