Butte Sports Hall of Fame now accepting nominations

The nomination period for the Butte Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2024 will be open from now until the end of the year.

Athletes must be nominated to be considered for the Butte Sports Hall of Fame, and only those nominated before the deadline will be considered. No exceptions will be made.

Those nominated in the last several selection processes do not need to be re-nominated. Re-nominations, though, can be made for the purpose of providing more information on a nominee.

Candidates who are 15 years or more removed from high school and have finished competing at their highest level of their sport are eligible for selection into the Hall. Categories are also available for head coaches, old timers (50 plus years) and contributors.

A public forum will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 8at the McQueen Club. The forum will allow people to make a presentation on behalf of nominees in front of the selection committee. All presentations will be strictly limited to 3 minutes. Letters of recommendation and/or short videos of support can be submitted to the Hall of Fame selection committee.

The 2024 inductees will be named in February, and the Green Jacket and Induction ceremonies will be held July 19 and 20 at the Butte Civic Center.

To submit a nomination, email as much information as possible to Bill Foley at foles74@gmail.com.
