Awards of up to $10,000 to USA and Puerto Rico individuals and groups of individuals who are positively shaping the future for rural communities and agriculture. Nominations will be accepted for a wide range of nominees, including, for example:
A “farm kid” who speaks to youth in urban areas about the importance of agriculture; a business leader respected for commitment to their community and the thriving future of rural America; an agriculture educator who may have inspired thousands throughout the years; or a farmer or rancher dedicated to progress and innovation on their farm or ranch.
Farm Credit 100 Fresh Perspectives honorees will have the opportunity to share their stories and inspire with their vision throughout the Farm Credit centennial year in 2016 and beyond.
Additionally, ten distinguished Farm Credit 100 Fresh Perspectives honorees — one from each nomination category — will receive a $10,000 award to help further their contributions to thriving rural communities and agriculture.
These ten honorees and a guest also will be invited to Washington, D.C. to participate in a special Farm Credit recognition event in 2016.
