Hopefully you have recently received some information about the National Outstanding Young Farmers Awards Program from your State President. We all work with outstanding producers that need and deserve to be recognized for their accomplishments!
At this link you will find another copy of the entry form for this award, as well as a here for a copy of the rules. The entry form must be submitted electronically by August 1, 2013.
Please keep in mind that there are several eligibility guidelines that must be met by your nominated farmer. Some of which include being between the ages of 21 and 40 and not becoming 41 prior to January 1, 2014, and deriving a minimum of 2/3 of their income from farming.
There were only 13 nominations across the county last year for this award. NACAA is one of the National sponsors, so finding good candidates for this award will be beneficial to everyone!
