SDSU's rodeo team is challenging more than 1,200 alumni and friends that have been involved with the program during its 62-year history to provide financial support for today's student-athletes.

Rodeo is a club sport that relies heavily on private donations. The team has more than 50 National Intercollegiate Association competitors that travel 5,000 miles a year to 10 separate rodeos in the region. Alumni and friends are being asked to donate at least $100 a year to support the team. The decade providing the most support will win the challenge, which will be launched April 3 as part of the "Buckles and Bling" fundraising banquet.

The first Stephanie Andersen-Williams scholarship will be awarded at the banquet. Andersen-Williams, a former rodeo team participant and 1997 graduate, died of cancer last April. Friends and family members created an endowed scholarship in her honor.

To participate in the SDSU Rodeo Alumni and Friends Challenge, send checks to the Rodeo Club, Box 2207, Brookings, SD  57007. Checks should be made payable to the SDSU Foundation.
