Rodeo Clown Talks to Students

Rodeo Clown Talks to Students

Posted: Updated:

When most of us think "rodeo," clowns aren't the first thing that comes to mind.

But, one rodeo entertainer from Washington was in Minot yesterday to talk to kids about what the rodeo is all about.

JJ the Clown went to elementary schools in town and gave them a glimpse at what he does.

He, along with Rodeo Queens from all over the country, explained to them a day in the life of a rodeo traveler, and what it takes to get there.

But riding horses and barrel racing isn't the only thing these students heard about today- JJ also interprets bullying into his talks to the kids.

He says that learning to respect each other goes hand in hand with working hard, and that's the message he wants to leave them with.

(JJ Harrison, Rodeo Clown) "We're talking about respecting each other today, we do a little bit of good morale stuff - but a lot of today is just fun. It's introducing them to the bull fighters, and it's introducing them to the rodeo queens who talk about their story - how you become a queen."

The rodeo in Minot ends this Sunday.
