Nominations are being sought for the PRCA Donita Barnes Contract Personnel Lifetime Achievement Award. This award was created to recognize PRCA members who have dedicated their lives to the rodeo industry for their commitment, work and contributions. Any active member (or active life member) of the PRCA may nominate eligible contract personnel members for the award.
Nominees must have been a PRCA member for a minimum of 15 years, and may not have won a yearly contract personnel award within 15 years of the date of nomination (life members may be nominated even if they are not actively renewed). Nomination letters of 500 words or less can be mailed to the PRCA, 101 ProRodeo Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80919 or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org between now and August 1.
All nominations will be reviewed by an external selection panel. The top five nominees will be voted on by any contract personnel members who have participated in at least one rodeo within that rodeo year.
For more information, contact Brandy Sorenson at the PRCA National Headquarters, 719.593.8840.
