PALMYRA, MO. (WGEM) -- Rockin A Arena in Palmyra was the place to be on Sunday afternoon as kids competed in the Missouri High School Rodeo Junior High State Finals.

Families from all over Missouri watched their children bull ride and barrel race, and hope that rodeos can continue to grow in Northeast Missouri and throughout our region.

"Rodeo is a family event," said Dawn Anderson, the co-owner of Rockin A Arena.

"Anytime you go anywhere or do anything, you're together, and I think in this society and in this world now it's just huge to be committed, for families to be drawn together."

"There's not a lot up in this area, but hopefully we can grow it," added Shawn Anderson, co-owner of Rockin A Arena.

"That's kind of the future of rodeo, if we don't get kids involved. We need more kids, more interest, and it's a way for us to give back to the community."
