PRCA: Nominations open for Contract Personnel Lifetime Achievement Award
Nominations are being sought for the Contract Personnel Lifetime Achievement Award, created a year ago to recognize Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) 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 the PRCA, 101 ProRodeo Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80919 or e-mailed to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org between now and Aug. 1.
All nominations will be reviewed by an external selection panel. The top five nominees will be included on a final ballot mailed out no later than Sept. 15. The final ballots will be sent to contract personnel members who have participated in at least one rodeo within that rodeo year. Ballots are to be returned no later than Oct. 15.
For more information, contact Brandy Sorenson or Amy Rodgers at the PRCA National Headquarters, 719-593-8840.
