COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Western finery will be on full display at Dickies Arena for the PRCA Awards Banquet on Dec. 2 at 6 p.m., the night before the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo opens at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. Cowboys and cowgirls will be decked out as they gather for the annual event to recognize best-of-the-best contributions to the sport that have made ProRodeo great in 2020.
“Undoubtedly, the highlights of any rodeo are those short, few seconds of performance in the arena, but it takes a whole lot to get to that point,” said George Taylor, chief executive officer of the PRCA. “We will honor the individuals and committees that make rodeo as a sport, and rodeos as events, such a great American pastime.”
Dickies Arena is the perfect venue for this celebration. Located in the cultural heart of Fort Worth next to the Will Rogers Memorial Center, the arena will be converted to honor the many contributors to a uniquely Western sport. PRCA members and fans will gather for the event to award prizes in the following 16 categories:
Donita Barnes Lifetime Achievement Award Stock Contractor of the Year
Announcer of the Year Secretary of the Year
Bullfighter of the Year Pickup Man of the Year
Clown of the Year Timer of the Year
Music Director of the Year Photographer of the Year
Comedy Act of the Year Dress Act of the Year
