Agriculture / Conservation News:Ag Award Nominees Needed

By Irene Percoski, CT State Grange Agriculture Committee Member

  July 1, 2021 --

As time to State Session moves closer our Committee is reminding all members to consider someone who could be named for the Outstanding Agricultural Promoter Award. Nominees for this award should be some- one who has demonstrated an excellence in promoting, advocating for, and /or supporting Agriculture in the State of Connecticut. This candidate does NOT HAVE TO BE A GRANGE MEMBER and can be from any industry as long as they demonstrate leadership and professionalism in the promotion of agriculture.

Your nomination should include Name, Address and Phone No. , the name and number of the Grange, person to contact, phone and e-mail. Send a description of the types of activities for promoting agriculture that the candidate is involved in. describe the difference they have made in their community or Grange and what are the candidate’s goals, including any furthering education. Nominations must be received by September 1, by Director J. Allen Cameron.

The Committee strongly encourages that this award should properly be nominated through each of the Pomona Granges but is not a requirement. This award should not be confused with the Outstanding Young Agricultural Professional Award or Outstanding Agricultural Professional Award.

In the past few years these awards have been very few and far between. We are an agriculture organization and we all should be anxious to bring some praise to young and older members who work in the farming and gardening business. Get busy nominating now.
