Department of Agriculture seeks nominees for Hall of Fame


Oklahoma agriculture has a rich history of progress. The years of success enjoyed by the industry are thanks to agriculturalists committed to striving for excellence. In 1998 the Governor's Outstanding Achievement Award in Agriculture was created to recognize those who have helped lead the industry while demonstrating exemplary personal values and pursuing agricultural achievements in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry is now accepting nominations for this award. The award winner is inducted into the Oklahoma Agricultural Hall of Fame located at the agency headquarters in Oklahoma City.

Examples of ag enterprises eligible nominees can be involved with are: livestock and crop production, agribusiness, forestry, horticulture and nursery management. In addition to considering nominees' production agriculture involvement, the application also accounts for leadership in agricultural and state organizations as well as additional awards and honors.

Previous award-winners have represented different areas of Oklahoma as well as a variety of ag groups and commodities. Past recipients have guided their families and communities to success by excelling as dairymen, cattle ranchers, pork producers, wheat farmers, conservationists and educators. Uniting previous Hall of Fame inductees is their service to their community in addition to their contribution to the ag industry.

"The Governor's Outstanding Achievement Award in Agriculture gives us the opportunity to recognize those individuals who have made a positive and lasting impact on agriculture in our state," said Oklahoma Secretary of Agriculture Jim Reese.

The deadline for all nominations is Feb. 19 at 5 p.m. Recipients will be selected by a committee of representatives from agricultural commodity organizations and farm and ranch organizations. Any questions regarding the nomination procedure or completion of the official nomination form can be directed to Jason Harvey at 405-522-5563. The official nomination form can be found at www.ag.ok.gov/odaff-halloffame.htm.
