April 11-12, 2014
First presented in 1961, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage
Museum Western Heritage Awards were established to honor and encourage
the legacy of those whose works in literature, music, film, and television
reflect the significant stories of the American West. The awards program
also recognizes inductees into the prestigious Hall of Great Westerners
and the Hall of Great Western Performers as well as the recipient of the
Chester A. Reynolds Memorial Award, named in honor of the Museum’s founder.
Each honoree receives a Wrangler, an impressive bronze sculpture of a
cowboy on horseback.
The Museum will close at 4:00 p.m. on April 12 to prepare for this event.
