The Montana Pro Rodeo Hall and Wall of Fame is dedicated to honoring Montana professional rodeo cowboys and cowgirls who exemplify Montana western heritage through the maintenance of a monument site located near the entrance to the MetraPark Arena in Billings, Montana. The monument site includes an 18’ bronze sculpture of six-time World Champion bronc rider Dan Mortensen with brick and granite walls honoring Montana’s professional rodeo champions, legends, queens and personnel.
Each year the Montana Pro Rodeo Hall and Wall of Fame awards $39,000 in scholarships. To date over a quarter million dollars in scholarships have been awarded. Twelve scholarships to Montana High School Rodeo seniors (6 Boys, 6 Girls), Miss Rodeo Montana receives a $2000 scholarship and Miss Montana High School Rodeo is awarded a $1000 scholarship.
