Quincy Chamber Now Accepting Ag Business & Educator Nominees

The Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce is now accepting nominations for the 2023 Agribusiness of the Year and Larry Fischer Ag Educator of the Year Award. Nominations for the awards will be accepted through 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12, and the winners will be recognized at the First Bankers Trust Ag banquet slated for March 14. The awards recognize leading businesses and educators while building awareness of agriculture and its impact in the Quincy area.

The Agribusiness nomination is open to businesses of any size within a 50-mile radius of Quincy with strong ties to the agricultural community, a record of community involvement, a record of good customer service and modern business practices. The contest is not limited to chamber members.

The Ag Educator Award recognizes an educator within a 50-mile radius of Quincy who has strong ties to the ag community. Past or present teachers at the high school and college level, ag literacy educators and professionals who work with producers can be nominated. Nominations should highlight what the educator does in the classroom and beyond — and the effect the message has on students.

The chamber and the committee want to recognize the industry’s importance with the 24th annual Agribusiness of the Year Award and the ninth annual Larry Fischer Ag Educator of the Year Award.

Nominations will be accepted up until 5pm on January 12, 2023  by Completing the form Here  of button below
