The Texas Lineman’s Rodeo Association extends a Texas-size and sincere “THANK YOU” to each and every sponsor of the Texas Lineman’s Rodeo for their generous donations and commitment to the Rodeo each year. Without sponsors like you, the Texas Lineman’s Rodeo would not be possible. Whether you are a Platinum Sponsor, Corporate Sponsor, Gold Sponsor, Event Sponsor, Individual Sponsor, or support the Rodeo with an advertisement in our Texas Lineman’s Rodeo magazine, your contributions help the TLRA provide a quality event for utilities, linemen and apprentices as well as for their families and friends

The TLRA hopes that those sponsors who have supported us throughout the years to make the Rodeo the quality event and competition it is today will continue to do so. We ask those companies or individuals who have not been a sponsor in the past to consider joining our elite group of sponsors and support the Rodeo at whatever level works best for them. The TLRA strives to ensure that all of its sponsors are recognized and acknowledged throughout the year via our website and magazine, and of course, throughout the Rodeo event.

Sponsors’ advertisements along with articles and other useful information are published each year in the Texas Lineman’s Rodeo magazine. The magazine is distributed to each Rodeo contestant as part of their registration packet, to others in the utility industry, and to the general public. To encourage a friendly competition among the advertisers and sponsors, the magazine staff selects the Most Creative Ad each year, and the winner is announced at the Rodeo Awards Ceremony. The winner also receives a trophy.

If you would like to be an invaluable resource to the linemen and apprentices who compete at the Texas Lineman’s Rodeo each year, please consider becoming and/or continuing your sponsorship as a Corporate Sponsor, Gold Sponsor, Event Sponsor or Individual Sponsor. Please also consider supporting our Golf Tournament which helps fund the TLRA Scholarship Fund or by placing an advertisement in the TLRA magazine

The Texas Lineman’s Rodeo Association is a nonprofit organization as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. For federal tax purposes, all or part of any donation may be tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
