 The Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame is now accepting nominations to honour individuals who have made significant contributions to Alberta’s agriculture and agri-food industry, and to the development and sustainability of rural life in Alberta.

“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,” says Rod Carlyon, chair, Agriculture Hall of Fame selection panel.

Since 1951, the Hall of Fame has celebrated the accomplishments of men and women who have dedicated their lives to agriculture and their rural communities. The 129 inductees have been innovators and risk-takers in every area of agriculture from ground breaking farming techniques to scientific accomplishments, creating value-added products and other outstanding contributions that have had a lasting, positive impact on agriculture and rural Alberta.

The 2016 inductees will be honoured this October at a celebration ceremony.

Nomination forms and more information about the Hall of Fame can be found on the Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame webpage, or by calling 780-968-3518. For toll-free access in Alberta, call 310-0000 first.

The deadline for nominations is April 30, 2016.
