The Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Association Board established the Trent Goscha Sportsmanship Award in 2017. The belt buckle award is presented annually at the Finals Rodeo in memory of Trent. Trent was a bright light in the community helping with the local gymkhanas, participating in the Roaring Fork Ranch Roping and always a presence at the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo. Trent participated in Mutton Bustin' and Calf Scramble at an early age and was always encouraging others to do their best. Trent had a contagious laugh and a smile that lit up a room.
