It’s that time again! We are inviting you to nominate rice industry leaders for the 2015 Rice Awards, sponsored by Horizon Ag, Rice Farming magazine and the USA Rice Federation. The categories are Rice Farmer of the Year, Rice Industry Award and Rice Lifetime Achievement Award.
The recipients will be honored at an awards luncheon at the USA Rice Outlook Conference in New Orleans, La., in December.
The deadline for nominations is June 30, 2015.
To download the nomination form and review the criteria for each category, click here.
When submitting a nomination, the more information you can provide about the person and his or her achievements, the easier it will be for the panel of judges from across the Rice Belt to make their selections. Additional letters of recommendation for the person that you nominate also are encouraged.
It is acceptable to re-submit a nomination from a previous year if that person was not selected for the award for which he or she was nominated.
I look forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
