The Farm Credit Colorado Agriculture Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be February 22, 2017.  The induction ceremony celebrates the lifelong commitment to agriculture of those nominated and selected to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

If you know someone who has played an outstanding role in keeping Colorado‘s agriculture industry and its allied businesses among the best in the nation—now is the time to nominate them for induction to the Farm Credit Colorado Agriculture Hall of Fame. This award is Colorado’s only state-wide award recognizing outstanding individuals from all facets of agriculture for their lifetime achievement.

Nominations are due October 1, 2016 to the Colorado FFA Foundation office.

Applications are available from the Colorado FFA Foundation and may be requested by calling 719-829-4483 or by downloading from the Foundation website, www.coloradoffafoundation.org.

The Colorado FFA Foundation also recognizes younger contributors to agriculture through the Rising Star award in conjunction with the Agriculture Hall of Fame. The Rising Star award recognizes the new generation of Colorado Agriculturists. The candidate is between the ages of 35 and 50 and is someone who is impacting any facet of agriculture in a positive way.  The members of the Farm Credit Colorado Agriculture Hall of Fame elect the Rising Star each year. Applications and details for the Rising Star award can be found at www.coloradoffafoundation.org.

Portraits of all of the members of the hall of fame dating back to 1989 are on display in the foyer of the CoBank Center for Agricultural Education located on Colorado State University’s ARDEC campus.  The public is always welcome to tour the CoBank Center and the Hall of Fame.

Take this opportunity to nominate that extraordinary individual—on behalf of yourself or your organization—whose unique contributions have helped shape Colorado’s agriculture industry.

Please call the Colorado FFA Foundation, 719-829-4483, or visit the Colorado FFA Foundation website for more information and nomination forms.
