WORLD CHAMPIONS – are determined by the awarded points coming into the finals, plus the points won during the finals, in each age group of each event. These awards will be given during the awards banquet after the rodeo Saturday night. In the event of a tie, the first tie breaker will be the contestant who came into the finals with the highest region standing. The second tie breaker will be the contestant placed the highest in the world standings coming into the finals.

AVERAGE WINNERS AT THE FINALS – are determined based upon times/scores at the finals and will be acknowledged during the last performance.
