The deadline for the nominations for the MSU Celebrate Agriculture Outstanding Ag Leader Award is fast approaching. You have until August 31st to nominate a leader in the industry.

Celebrate Agriculture is the MSU College of Agriculture's annual event to honor Montana's agricultural legacy and current and future agricultural leaders, producers, and students.

MSU is looking for nominees for the outstanding Ag Leader who are well respected in the ag community and have contributed significantly to the success of the industry. The recipient of the award will be honored at the Harvest Brunch on November 10th

The Celebrate Agriculture weekend kicks off on Friday, November 9th with the annual Agricultural Economics Outlook Conference in the Procrastinator Theater. That evening the Harvest Ball will be held as a throwback to 1968 with a vintage costume contest and live music by Rocky Mountain Pearls. Find the full schedule here.

To nominate someone for the Outstanding Ag Leader Award fill out the form that can be found at this link, then mail or email your submission with a phot in. Supporting letters of recommendation are highly encouraged.
