Nomination Form 

 


Rationale -- BC's early history was carved out of the wilderness by thousands of hard working and forgotten cowboys. The Hall of Fame was created to capture the memories of these living legends and share their stories.

The Committee believes that while there are many ways to recognize people who pursue different careers and/or make significant contributions to their community, induction into the Cowboy Hall of Fame is the only formal way to recognize and record into history the contributions of the "hard working and often forgotten cowboys."

Therefore we believe limiting Hall of Fame eligibility to actual working cowboys will ensure the legends, both present and past, and their contributions to BC's heritage will not be forgotten nor overshadowed.

CRITERIA - all categories. The nominee must be, or have been, a professional working cowboy or rancher whose contributions have been made in British Columbia.

DEFINITIONs; a professional cowboy is one who has earned his/her living physically working with cattle and horses. A ranch derives its income mainly from the sale of beef cattle.

Categories - a cowboy may be nominated for one or more categories

1. WORKING COWBOY - a person who has spent many years working on ranches with cattle and horses, who has done a good job, and is looked up to by his/her peers.

2. COMPETITIVE - a cowboy who has done well in cowboy sports and contributed to the betterment of rodeo or other horse sports.

3. PIONEER - a rancher who has spent many years developing a ranch.

4. HORSEMAN - a cowboy/rancher who, as part of his job, has turned out extra good ranch or rodeo horses.

5. ARTISTIC - a cowboy/rancher who did something in the way of cowboy life, through poetry, art, music, writing, and or crafts.

6. FAMILY - members have been involved in cowboy activities for three or more generations.

7. CENTURY RANCHES - ranches that have been in the same family for 100 years or more.
