The Canadian Forage and Grassland Association (CFGA) is seeking nominations for its leadership award.

The award “recognizes individuals, groups or organizations that exemplify or enhance the goals of the CFGA and whose leadership in the forage and grassland sector has impact of national and/or international significance,” states a release from the association.

Nominations are open until Sept. 30. The recipient will be notified by Oct. 14, and invited to make a keynote presentation at the CFGA’s annual conference in 2020.

The presentation may include an overview of past achievements, current endeavours and perspective on future challenges related to forage and grasslands. Alternately, the award recipient can propose an original project that features and promotes forage and grassland, such as a video, an extension activity or some other communication approach.

The recipient will be presented with a memento and citation recognizing their achievements, and a cash award to a maximum of $6,000 to cover allowable expenses, including travel to make presentations at the 2020 CFGA annual conference and other meetings relevant to forage and grasslands.

Nominations forms for the 2019 CFGA Leadership Award are available online.
