SUBJECT: 2018 CYFEA Outstanding Young Farmer Recognition Awards For Involvement During 2017
Greetings CYFEA Chapters:
The Board of Directors of the Colorado Young Farmers Educational Association is pleased to announce the continuation of the Outstanding Young Farmer Recognition Awards. The purposes of these annual awards are to recognize outstanding CYFEA Chapters, their membership, and associated agri-business and services, that participate in local CYFEA Chapter activities and agricultural community service programs annually. These awards are for achievements for the 2017 calendar year and will be judged by the 2017 CYFEA Executive Team.
The seven award categories are for Outstanding CYFEA: Chapter Advisor, Chapter, Chapter Member, Regional Chapter Member, Chapter Community Service, Agri-Service, and Agri-Business.
The CYFEA Outstanding Young Farm award applicants must be a member of a Colorado Chapter in good standing. These recognition award applications are available on the CYFEA website (www.cyfea.org) under the “CYFEA Recognition Awards” header. Selection of the Outstanding Young Farmer award winners are based upon the personal and local community based activities of the individual or Chapter, along with the promotional and educational advocacy of the CYFEA and agriculture in Colorado.
The 2017 year’s winners will be recognized and presented their awards at the 2018 CYFEA State Institute, January 25 – 28, 2018, at the Omni Interlocken Hotel, in Broomfield, CO.
All award applications, representing achievements for the 2017 calendar year, must be received by January 5, 2018 and sent to:
