HURON, S.D. – The tenth annual South Dakota Timed Event Championship (SDTEC) Rodeo sponsored in part by Panhandle, LG Seeds, and Double D Western will be held September 5 and 6 in at the South Dakota State Fairgrounds in Huron during the 2020 South Dakota State Fair. 

The area’s elite youth rodeo contestants will compete in six timed events, including tie-down calf roping, barrel racing, team roping, goat tying, breakaway roping, and steer wrestling.  Any rodeo youth from across the country, ages 14 – 19, are eligible to compete for the title.
