BOZEMAN – Montana State University’s College of Agriculture is seeking nominations for outstanding agricultural leaders to honor during its 2013 Celebrate Agriculture!! on Oct. 25-26.
“The weekend is about sharing ideas and developing relationships,” said Jeff Jacobsen, college dean and director of the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station.
The College of Agriculture annually presents Outstanding Agricultural Leaders awards to those who have exhibited outstanding leadership in Montana public service, as an agricultural producer, industry advocate, agri-business leader, or as a friend of agriculture.
The deadline for nominations is Sept. 9. Nominees not selected will be reconsidered the following year. Applications should be updated with current information. Successful award applicants will be: well respected in their agricultural community; actively involved in the agriculture industry with accomplishments that impact many; an industry leader, or an upcoming, active and innovative producer; or have a lifetime of achievement in agriculture.
Current MSU, state, or federal employees, will not be considered except in the friend of agriculture category. Past MSU, state or federal employees need to have been retired for a minimum of two years, and shown service above and beyond their job requirements to be considered.
