The contest is open to all Texas eight grade students. There were more than 3,000 students that submitted entries. HJH students complete essays as a part of the class requirements. Teacher Martha Bachman submitted several essays to the contest.

This is the 23rd Year to Feature Cowboy Music, Poetry and Rodeo Performances at the historic Fort Worth Stockyards. The gathering featured countless family-oriented activities where visitors can experience the true west. This authentic western event included Cowboy poets, western entertainers and an action-packed Ranch Rodeo where teams of ranch hands from 15 famous Texas ranches.

Steagall was born in Gainesville, and competed in rodeos as a youth and learned to play the guitar and mandolin. After college, Steagall traveled to California to share western traditions and values with the rest of the world through songs, poems, books, television and movies. Although Red Steagall is best known for his Texas swing dance music, he is also highly respected by Texas cowboys for the lyrical way in which he writes about the western way of life; he was honored as the Poet Laureate of Texas in 2006. A world performer, he has only called one place home – Texas.
