Each year, Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan works with a selection panel to recognize a person who strives to engage consumers about agriculture and helps farmers to build public trust in our province and beyond.
The Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan Champion Award is presented to an individual who has taken the initiative to engage or educate consumers about food and farming in our province. Nominees have used their skills to help inform consumers about production practices and have done a measurable job of promoting our industry.
The selection committee will choose a winner from the nominations submitted and the award recipient will be honoured at the annual Cultivating Trust Conference.
Nominations are open to any who have taken an active role in promoting Saskatchewan food and farming and helping build public trust in the agriculture industry. Applications should be as detailed as possible.
Nominees must be a resident of Saskatchewan. Nominations will be accepted from anyone, including the FFC SK Board, although current board members are not eligible for nomination themselves. People may submit more than one nomination. The deadline for nominations is September 30 each year.
Those who are nominated but do not win in the current year will stay in the nomination pool for one more year with an additional opportunity to receive recognition for their hard work.
