The San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo has been nominated for “Large Indoor Rodeo of the Year” for the second year in a row by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA).
The president of the Stock Show and Rodeo Association, Erwin Schwartz Jr., accredited the nomination to the support of community, sponsors, fans and contestants.
San Angelo will be competing against Denver, Fort Worth and San Antonio for the award.
These cities have 20-30 times more than the population and supporters of San Angelo.
Preliminary voting by electronic ballot was cast in August from PRCA contestants, contract personnel and rodeo committees.
The category winner will be announced in Las Vegas, Nevada in December at the annual PRCA banquet.
The San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo, along with the carnival, is scheduled for February 2-18, 2018.
