July 24, 2013 — To celebrate the National Day of the American Cowboy this Saturday, July 27, American Cowboy magazine is holding a #KissACowboy contest on their Facebook page, http://facebook.com/AmericanCowboyMagazine.
Starting on Monday, July 22, readers could enter the #KissACowboy contest by posting a picture of themselves kissing, or being kissed by, a cowboy to the American Cowboy Facebook, Twitter (https://twitter.com/americancowboy_), or Instagram pages (http://instagram.com/americancowboy) and tagging it with the #KissACowboy and #NDAC hashtags. Entries will be picked at random to win one of six prizes awarded daily until Saturday, July 27.
“We hold The National Day of the American Cowboy near and dear to our hearts since its founding in 2004,” says Associate Editor Lauren Feldman. “We thought what better (and fun!) way to show our appreciation for the American cowboy than by giving him a big smooch.”

What Is the National Day of the American Cowboy?
The National Day of the American Cowboy campaign was founded by American Cowboy magazine in 2004 to preserve, protect and promote our cowboy and Western heritage. This is accomplished by lobbying for the passage of a national resolution designating the fourth Saturday of every July as a permanent celebration on the national calendar honoring cowboys and cowgirls for their enduring contribution to the courageous, pioneering spirit of America.
“The cowboy spirit is about honesty, integrity, courage, and patriotism, and cowboys are models of strong character, sound family values, and good common sense.” (Senate Resolution 191, designating July 27, 2013 as “National Day of the American Cowboy.”)
American Cowboy magazine was founded in 1994 and is based in Boulder, Colorado. You can learn more at www.americancowboy.com.
