NCGA Seeking Good Steward Nominations

The National Corn Growers Association “Good Steward” nomination deadline is Monday, August 6th. NCGA is asking for nominations of someone who is “doing a stellar job on their farm of demonstrating the economic and conservation value of soil management.” This year anyone can nominate a candidate for recognition if they are a corn grower member of the association. NCGA affiliate states and organizational partners may also submit nominations.

One recipient will be selected from a field of nominees submitted by NCGA state affiliates and other corn industry and organizational partners. Nomination forms must be completed jointly by the nominating party and the nominee and will be processed through NCGA.

Selection of the Good Steward Recognition will be made by experts in the field of agricultural conservation, environment and sustainability. The announcement of the recipient will be made at Commodity Classic in Orlando, Florida next year.
