The Illinois High School Rodeo Association aims to maintain order and standards as set forth by the National High School Rodeo Association and the IHSRA, among its members and at their functions.  We promote high school rodeo on a state-wide basis by bringing state-wide recognition to this program.  We promote horsemanship, sportsmanship, and character.  We plan to promote the highest type of conduct at the various IHSRA rodeos and functions by setting standards which will bring about this goal. We plan to keep the Western Heritage alive in America and certainly in the State of Illinois.  We promote closer relationships amongst the people interested in this activity and the organization that they represent.  We promote the humane treatment of animals at all times. And, most importantly, we encourage students to continue in school and to improve their education to the best of their ability.
