Finalists: Please rsvp the number attending the WRMA Award Banquet/Ceremony to: laurie@magnificentsam.com . Please wait until further notice to fill out the reservation form (in the package you received, or click here). At that time, we'll ask you to mail the completed form along with a check/money order for your dinner/ceremony tickets. 


We would like to extend our thanks and congratulations to all the poets, authors, publishers, and artists who entered. Both the number and the quality of entries this year are outstanding, and is a tribute not only to the continuing interest in the West and literature about it, but also to the the scholarship, insight, and skill of the researchers, writers, and storytellers who keep that interest alive and vital. This year was especially notable for the depth and virtuosity of the Western Fiction, with two dozen entries in that category alone. Once again, our thanks and admiration to all the wonderfully talented people who took the time and effort to enter. Thank you!

-Charles Williams, Executive Director

Will Rogers Medallion Award Committee
