    Three members of the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame were presented with the generous donation of $15,600 from First Interstate Banks of Wyoming and the First Interstate BancSystem Foundation on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 in Riverton, Wyoming.

    This grant donation will fund Phase I of the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame’s Media Plan producing a 2-3 minute promotional video.  The promotional video trailer will be used to seek additional funding through private and public foundations to create a documentary What Makes a Wyoming Cowboy?  The documentary will explore the heart and soul of the Wyoming Cowboy and will highlight many of the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame inductees.




    2017 Nominations


    The Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame (WCHF) has named three classes totaling 140 Honorees to date.  On December 1 nominations will open for the class of 2017; and they will close again on February 28, 2017.  The website link for nomination forms is http://www.wyomingcowboyhalloffame.com/nomination/ Clear instructions for nominating are outlined at the WCHF website, and photos can be submitted along with each nomination.

    A frequently asked question is “Why hasn’t this person been inducted into the WCHF?”  Most likely the answer is, “They’ve never been nominated.”

    The WCHF can only consider and induct nominated individuals, so the Board seriously urges each of you to think of the worthy individuals within your acquaintance and do everything possible to make sure they are nominated.

    There are 10 geographic regions within the state, and nominations for each region will be vetted and filtered by local committees after the nominations close, with the top choices moving up the line for consideration by WCHF Board of Directors in the Spring.

    The “Cowboy State” is proud of that designation and WCHF is excited and eager to enshrine each worthy man and woman into WCHF.  If you need assistance with your nomination contact a committee or Board Member near you found on the Contact page or Regional Contact page.
