The Kansas Cowboy Hall of Fame Committee requests nominations of individuals for consideration for induction into the Kansas Cowboy Hall of Fame.

Each year legendary Kansas cowboys are honored for their contributions to the western life as they are inducted into the Kansas Cowboy Hall of Fame in Dodge City. The Kansas Cowboy Hall of Fame honors these individuals at a ceremony each year.

Kansas Cowboy Hall of Fame inductees are selected for their significant contributions to the western heritage lifestyle, past or present, and to the preservation of the cowboy culture in Kansas. Each of them personifies the cowboy ideals of integrity, honesty, and self- sufficiency.

“We are thrilled to be able to honor five special cowboys that have made a difference in the lives of those around them, and their communities in Kansas.” Said Lara Brehm, Executive Director of Boot Hill Museum.

Awards are granted in five categories: Working Cowboy, Cowboy Historian, Cowboy Entertainer/Artist, Rodeo Cowboy, and Rancher/Cattleman.

Any organization or individual may nominate a qualified person, living or deceased, for consideration. The Kansas Cowboy Hall of Fame Committee from all over the state, meets annually to evaluate and determine inductees.

Nomination forms may be requested through Boot Hill Museum, Inc., Front Street, Dodge City, Kansas 67801.
