Ag Hall of Fame open for nominations

by admin

            Each year, the Wyoming Livestock Roundup recognizes two Wyoming citizens or couples for their involvement in the state’s agriculture industry by inducting them into the Wyoming Agriculture Hall of Fame. Started in 1992, the Hall of Fame has honored over 50 Wyomingites to date.

                  “The Wyoming Ag Hall of Fame award was first started in 1992 to recognize leadership in the ag community,” says Wyoming Livestock Roundup Publisher Dennis Sun. “The need is there to recognize people who have been leaders, given themselves, their time and countless resources to help the ag community in the state. It is a memorable and deserving award for those selected.”

            The 2019 inductees were Dick Hiser and Jim Wilson.

            Nomination forms are available at wylr.net or by contacting the Wyoming Livestock Roundup at 307-234-2700 or roundup@wylr.net.

            After nominations are submitted, a panel of three independent judges will be selected to review applications and select the winners. Hall of Fame inductees will be honored at the Wyoming Ag Hall of Fame picnic, scheduled to be held on Aug. 12 during the Wyoming State Fair. At the picnic, nominees will receive a commemorative poster and belt buckle.

             Nominations are due by June 10. Forms can be mailed to Wyoming Livestock Roundup, PO Box 850, Casper, WY 82602 or e-mailed to roundup@wylr.net. Feel free to include any supplemental information with the nomination form, including letters of support. Call 307-234-2700 with any questions.
