Junior Rangers

A Junior Ranger pinning on his badge. In the 1930s, the radio programs Riding with the Texas Rangers and The Lone Ranger sponsored children's clubs that proved to be very popular. In 1936, Texas celebrated the centennial of its Independence with a Texas-sized fair in Dallas. A special promotion authorized by the state allowed children visiting Texas Rangers Company "B" headquarters at the fair to become Junior Texas Rangers.

Today, the Junior Texas Ranger program is hosted by the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame & Museum. Participants receive an honorary certificate signed by an active duty Texas Ranger, a toy badge, a family pass for four to the museum, and they are included in the interactive map.
