Wyoming Democratic Party presents
the 2020

 Nellie Tayloe Ross


Nellie Tayloe Ross Banquet

Please join the Wyoming Democratic Party for an evening celebrating the important role women have played in Wyoming's political history.

As the first state to recognize a woman's right to vote, to appoint a female judge, and the first to elect a woman as governor, Wyoming has certainly earned its nickname "The Equality State."

This year's banquet will take place Saturday, February 22, 2020 at Little America Hotel in Cheyenne. Check in will begin at 6:00 p.m., and dinner will begin at 7 p.m.

The Wyoming Democratic Party is proud to recognize two exceptional WyoDems with the Party Builder and Nellie Tayloe Ross awards.


The Nellie Tayloe Ross Banquet is named in honor of the first woman elected to serve as Governor in our country. We are proud that this distinction belongs to the State of Wyoming and the Democratic Party. As is tradition, an award named in honor of Governor Ross will be presented during the banquet. The recipient of this award, a Democratic woman who embodies the spirit of NTR, will be chosen by the Executive Committee of the WDP and announced on February 10, 2020.
