Nominations are now open for the 2018 College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Honorary Recognition Award, Distinguished Service Award and Distinguished Alumni Award. These are the highest honors awarded by the college, recognizing individuals who have demonstrated outstanding service to their communities, their chosen career fields, and the citizens of the state and the nation.

An individual may be considered for only one award during a given year, so nominators should select the most appropriate award for their candidate. Please note that nominations remain valid for three years and that once an individual has received an award, that person may not be nominated for another CALS award for three years.

Information for each award, a listing of past honorees and nomination forms are available at Nominations are due April 6, 2018.  As you consider possible nominees, think about those individuals who have demonstrated leadership and been an inspiration to others in agriculture, natural resources, and/or the life sciences.

Honorees will be recognized at an Awards Banquet and Ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 25 in the Varsity Room at Union South. A reception will be held at 5:30 p.m., with dinner at 6:30 p.m.
