Ultimate Scramble Championship (USC) is Rodeo Austin's extreme sport for youth! Unlike any other Calf Scramble program, USC is a one-day tournament in which competitors catch calves in hopes of advancing to the next round. Half of all competitors will receive at least $1,000 for catching a calf. $25,000 will be divided among the 16 competitors who make it to the finals in the Rodeo Arena, with one person receiving a first-place prize amount of $5,000 and the title of Ultimate Scramble Champion. With the USC certificates, winners can purchase animal of choice: market steer, market lamb, market goat, market barrow, breeding heifer or breeding goat to bring to the next year's show. Over the course of the year, the student gains knowledge on financial responsibility and time management by caring for the animal. For most participants, this is an opportunity for them to learn about the livestock industry and start their own investments within the industry.
