For the second year in a row, the Coleman PRCA Rodeo has been nominated as the Rodeo of the Year in the Medium Outdoor Category. Other rodeos nominated in this category include Amarillo, Texas; Weatherford, Texas; and Deadwood, South Dakota. Professional cowboys, stock contractors and contract personnel such as clowns, announcers, pickup men and rodeo secretaries make the nominations for the annual PRCA awards. Voting is underway and winners will be announced at the annual PRCA Awards Banquet on December 3rd in conjunction with the National Finals Rodeo.
Also nominated for Stock Contractor of the Year again is Coleman PRCA Rodeo producer Stace Smith Pro Rodeo. A win for Stace would be a record eleventh. The Coleman PRCA Rodeo is held each June at the Coleman Rodeo Grounds. The dates for the 2015 Coleman PRCA Rodeo are June 11, 12, 13.
Stace Smith will return again next year with his prize stock as well as will top specialty acts and concerts.
The Coleman Rodeo Association would also like to congratulate 14 year-old Lainey McElreath who was nominated in the National Anthem contest for her live performance of the Star Spangled Banner each night to kick off the Coleman PRCA Rodeo. The winner of the contest receives a trip to the NFR to perform the national anthem courtesy of Las Vegas Events.
