Nominations welcome for Cowboy Hall of Fame

WYOMING – Nominations are currently being accepted for candidate inductions into the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame Class of 2022.

Applications must include biographical information and photographs of each nominee and be submitted by Feb. 28.

The Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have spent a minimum 45 years working – for a livelihood – in the saddle. The predominant part of a nominee’s work should have involved riding horseback and working livestock. The minimum age for a living inductee is 65. Special circumstances could be considered and inductees may be honored posthumously.

Nominees can include women and don’t need to have been born in Wyoming but all nominees must have had primary residency in Wyoming and spent the majority of their time as a working cowboy in Wyoming. Ownership of a ranch or land is not required.

The nominee could have spent their working time as a ranch hand. Cowboy work is the primary criteria. Families and couples may be nominated together but all individuals must meet the requirements.

Nomination forms can be acquired by emailing [email protected] or by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope to WCHF, PO Box 404, Saratoga, WY 82331.

Nominations are considered by county committees and verified by the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame Board. Final decisions will be made in late spring and announced in early June.

The Class of 2022 is honored Sept. 23-24 in Little America in Cheyenne.
