Created in 1998 to promote the connection between the Tribune Eagle, community involvement and Cheyenneâ€™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.
