Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can anyone submit a nomination?
A. Yes, anyone can submit a nomination. Our hope, our goal is to make the most of the wealth of local knowledge across the state about our significant Cowboy culture.
Q. How do I submit an application for a nominee?

Q. Is there any fee to submit an application for a nominee?
A. No, but you can choose to make a donation before you submit your application to help defer some of the costs involved with processing your nomination application and investigating your nominee via PayPal.
Q. What happens to my application after I submit it?
A. Completed nominations will be sorted and sent to the regions in which the nominee resided most of their cowboy/cowgirl life in. Local leaders on the Regional Committees will meet and review the nominations of potential honorees that resided in their region. After investigating the nominations, the Regional Committees will identify nominees they wish to recognize and honor and forward their recommendations to the State Board to consider. The State Board will review the recommendations and vote on the nominees that will be inducted that year at both the local and state level.
Q. Do the Regional Committees and the WCHF Board only select 1 nominee to be inducted each year?
A. Both the WCHF Board and the Regional Committees may choose the number of inductees to be honored with no minimum or maximum set.
Q. If the person I nominate isn’t chosen as an inductee, do I need to submit another application the following year for them to be considered?
A. No, all correctly completed nomination forms will be kept in a pool for future consideration.
Q. How will I know if the person I nominated was selected to be inducted?
A. The nominator will be notified and all inductees to the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame will be publicized state-wide.
Q. How can I help the Cowboy Hall of Fame?
A. There are several ways you can help the Cowboy Hall of Fame. First of all, you can go to the Support Page on the website and choose the level of support you’d like to send. Secondly, you can serve as a member of your Regional Committee or contact the Chairman of your region and ask them if there are other things they could use your help with, like the annual or bi-annual functions to help honor the inductees, etc.
