Well, the contest was well over a month ago, but I’ll bet that the winners, especially Don Welborn and Eric Borden are still basking in the glory of having won in the Kansas Cowboy Poetry Contest, held in Alma, in Wabaunsee County on June 8.

Don Welborn of Meriden took a First in the Serious Division, and Second in the Humorous Division; Eric Borden of Drexel, MO, took a Second in the Serious Division, and a Third in the Humourous Division. Other winners were Jeremy Raaf of Gridley, who took the Third in the Serious Division, and Dwight Burgess of Wamego, who took the top honors in the Humorous Division.

The top winners in each category each received one of the coveted Governor’s Trophy Buckles, that’s Governor Sam Brownback, whose picture appears with the winners at www.wabaunsee.com/kansas-cowboy-poetry-contest . (Doesn’t Governor Sam have a cowboy hat of his own?)
