7th annual Roughstock Challenge Battle of the Banks

Thursday, March 25, 2021

The seventh annual Roughstock Challenge Battle of the Banks Rodeo was held Saturday, March 20, 2021, at the Carroll County Fairgrounds Arena in Berryville. The annual event serves as a fundraiser for the FFA chapters at Green Forest, Berryville and Alpena school districts. According to organizers, Saturday’s event — based on admission, concessions and sponsorships — raised more than $4,000 for each chapter. Among the five primary sponsors — Equity Bank, Arvest Bank, First National Bank of Northwest Arkansas, Anstaff Bank and Cornerstone Bank — Arvest emerged as the winner of the fantasy rodeo competition and decided to donate its $1,000 entry fee to Loaves and Fishes Food Bank in Berryville. The entry fees from the other banks were split between the various FFA programs.
