Nominations are open for the Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame, the province’s highest agricultural honour.
Up to three outstanding individuals will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year in recognition of their significant contributions to agriculture and the sustainability of rural life in Alberta.
Since 1951, the Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame has celebrated the accomplishments of visionary men and women who have dedicated their lives to agriculture and their rural communities. The inductees are innovators and community builders, and their leadership has made a lasting, positive impact across the industry.
“Agriculture is at the heart of who we are as Albertans – that’s why the Hall of Fame is so important in recognizing those whose vision and hard work have helped advance our sector. We are paying tribute to the ongoing legacy of agricultural innovation in our province. I encourage all Albertans to nominate women and men who have worked to improve agricultural practices, support growth in the industry and educate the next generation of farmers and ranchers.”
~Oneil Carlier, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry
Nominations close on April 30. Candidates must be nominated by three individuals who are not members of their immediate family.
Information about the Hall of Fame, including nomination forms and biographies of previous inductees, is available on the Agriculture and Forestry website.
