Created in 1998 to promote the connection between the Tribune Eagle, community involvement and Cheyenne’s largest event, the award honors individuals who have volunteered their time and efforts to make Cheyenne a better place to live.
The award draws its inspiration from the creator of Frontier Days, Col. E.A. Slack, publisher of The Daily Sun-Leader, the predecessor of The Wyoming Tribune Eagle. Slack used his influence and his newspaper to build support for a community event that would draw visitors to the young town. By first gaining the support of other influential and dedicated citizens and then by using the Sun-Leader to promote the idea, Slack successfully pulled together the first Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo in September 1897.
