The Champions of Excellence Awards have received a facelift, and now only features one award application for the county’s Grassroots work. The previous Involvement application will now be selected by numbers pulled directly from county statistics. Click here for involvement award criteria. The new Champions of Excellence Application - Grassroots has integrated the criteria that was previously including in the Leadership Development, Advocacy and Innovation applications.
The purpose of this award is to acknowledge the efforts of county Farm Bureaus for their innovative efforts in advocating for agriculture and actively engaging a variety of members.
The key to this award will be how successful your County Farm Bureau was at identifying and addressing a critical issue for agriculture or your community. Points will be awarded for how innovative you were in either creating a new program or elevating a current one. The ideas/events submitted though the Champion of Excellence Award process will be shared with other counties in the hopes that may utilize in the future.
DEADLINE: July 1, 2021
