PRCA creates Contract Personnel Lifetime Achievement Award
The PRCA is making plans to honor a contract personnel member with a new award in 2011.
The Contract Personnel Lifetime Achievement Award will recognize those contract personnel members who have committed their lives to the rodeo industry, and have received little or no recognition for their commitment, work and contributions. Any PRCA member may nominate eligible contract personnel members for the award.
Nominees must have been PRCA members for a minimum of 15 years, and may not have won a yearly contract personnel award (announcer, bullfighter, clown, Coors Man in the Can, secretary, specialty act, stock contractor) within 15 years of the date of nomination. Nomination letters of 500 words or less can be mailed to PRCA, 101 ProRodeo Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80918 or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com between now and Aug. 1.
The letters will be reviewed by an external selection committee, and the five finalists will be voted on by participating contract personnel members. The winner of the lifetime achievement award will be recognized at the PRCA Convention and Awards banquet in Las Vegas prior to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. The winner will also receive a Montana Silversmiths bronze.
For more information, contact Brandy Sorenson or Amy Rodgers at the PRCA National Headquarters, 719-593-8840.
