CHAMBER SEEKS NOMINATIONS FOR 2022 AG BUSINESS, AG EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR

CHAMBER SEEKS NOMINATIONS FOR AG BUSINESS, AG EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR

Nominations due January 26

The Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations for the 2022 Agribusiness of the Year and Larry Fischer Ag Educator of the Year. The Chamber asks that the public think of what makes potential nominees stand out among their competitors, how they serve their community, and how they serve the ag community? When thinking about an ag educator, how many lives have they touched? How has that educator promoted interest in ag-related careers?

Since 2000, the Chamber has given an Agribusiness of the Year Award to emphasize the importance of the agriculture industry on the stability of our local economy. The Larry Fischer Ag Educator of the Year Award has been awarded since 2015 and honors an individual who has made an impact on students and the future of the agriculture. The Ag Educator of the Year Award is co-sponsored by John Wood Community College Ag Alumni.

The deadline to submit nominations is Wednesday, January 26, at 5 p.m. Nominations can be made by filling out the appropriate form below. The winners, along with the Herald-Whig Farm Family of the Year, will be recognized at the First Bankers Trust Ag Banquet on March 8, 2022.
