Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame seeks nominations for 2018

The Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame (MCHF) is seeking nominations for the 2018 Hall of Fame induction round. Every year, the MCHF honors living and historical figures that have made notable contributions to Montana’s western heritage.

“We invite people from across Montana to identify those in their communities who are most deserving of inclusion in the hall of fame,” said Bill Galt, board president. “Nominations are open and welcome from the public at large.”

2018 marks the 11th year of honoring inductees. The Board of Trustees will cast votes to select inductees from each of the 12 Trustee Districts based on nominations from the public.

Nominees can be men, women, ranches, stage coach lines, animals, hotels and more – anyone or anything that has made a notable contribution to our Montana western heritage. A full listing of inductees from 2011-17, the 2018 nomination instructions and more about the Hall of Fame induction process can be found online at

To make a nomination, contact the MCHF at or by calling (406) 653-3800 prior to the submission deadline to express the intent to nominate. Nominations must include a cover page, a two-page biography and a high-quality photograph. All nomination documents must be in electronic format and emailed by May 31.

The 2018 Class of the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame will be announced by press release by Sept. 1. Winning inductees will be honored at the 2019 Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony & Western Heritage Gathering.
