Call for nominations

The Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame is accepting nominations to honour individuals who have made significant contributions

The Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame is accepting nominations to honour individuals who have made significant contributions to Alberta’s agriculture and agri-food industry.

Every two years, Alberta’s Agriculture Hall of Fame recognizes up to three Albertans whose outstanding leadership, innovation and business practices have advanced Alberta’s agriculture and food industry at the community, provincial, national or international level.

Since 1951, the Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame has celebrated the accomplishments of men and women who have dedicated their lives to agriculture and their rural communities. The 126 inductees have been innovators and risk-takers in every area of agriculture from innovative farming techniques to scientific accomplishments, creating value-added products and other outstanding contributions that have had a lasting, positive impact on agriculture.

The 2014 inductees will be honoured in Edmonton next October at a celebration ceremony.

More information about the Hall of Fame and nomination forms can be found on Alberta Agriculture’s Hall of Fame webpage, or by calling 780-422-0492. For toll-free access in Alberta, call 310-0000 first.

The deadline for nominations is April 30, 2014.

Contact: barb.shackel.hardman@gov.ab.ca or Barb Shackel-Hardman 780-968-3550.
