The President’s Award is given in recognition of outstanding accomplishments over and above the usual criteria for awards. The WMA Awards are an opportunity for the Association to recognize those members who have shown the greatest competence in recordings or concerts and in taking the genre of Western Music and Poetry to the public. The Western Music Association is an organization that encourages and supports the preservation, performance and composition of historic, traditional and contemporary music and poetry of The American West. WMA was founded in 1989.
