Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame
The Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame began as an idea among friends, Scott Ratliff, Jim and Paulette Moss, and Pinky Walter, in 2012, and the official 501(c)(3) and board was formed the next year. In 2014, the first official Induction Ceremony was held at the Fort Reno Building, at the Wyoming State Fairgrounds. In 2015, the Induction Ceremonies were moved to the Casper Events Center to handle the large amount of guests and to provide a central location for the Induction Ceremonies.
Wyoming is divided up into 10 geographic regions to localize inductee selections. Each region is made up of a member on the WCHF board, and a local committee to assist the board in selecting the honorees.
Nominations are taken from Dec 1 through Feb 28, inductee selections are made in May and the official Induction Ceremony is held in September.
