County Recognition Awards

County Activities of Excellence Awards

The County Activities of Excellence Awards program is designed to recognize county Farm Bureaus for outstanding achievements on the local level. The award application consists of five categories in which a county can receive recognition. The categories are member services, policy implementation, leadership, ag education/promotion, or public relations. Every county can receive an Activities of Excellence Award in each category in which they submit an application and meet minimum levels of participation. Counties are placed into classes based on agriculture membership numbers and will be judged relative to other CFBs of similar size. One county from each category will be awarded the County of the Year Award.
