The RTAC Roadeo is held annually in New Berlin. Contestants participate in four events: written test, wheelchair securement, pre-trip inspection and driving. Although not everyone wins a trophy or plaque, each contestant does receive a t-shirt and lunch. The winner of each event is presented with a plaque. The first, second and third overall winner is presented with a trophy and a cash award. The first place winner also receives an all expense paid trip to participate in the National Roadeo that is sponsored by the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA). Each year the National Roadeo is held at a different locale, such as Seattle, Philadelphia, Austin, St Louis, Reno, and New Orleans.
