Monsanto Accepting Nominations for 'Farm Mom of the Year'
Minnesota Ag Connection - 03/15/2017

Monsanto Company once again wants to recognize women in its 2017 America's Farmers Mom of the Year contest. This is the eighth year of the program, which is taking nominations through March 31.

Program coordinators say anyone can enter their favorite farm mom, whether it's their mom, sister, aunt, daughter, friend or community member.

"Looking at our previous Farm Mom of the Year winners, one commonality stood out: their dedication to their communities," said Monsanto Marketing Communications Manager Tracy Mueller. "This year we've enhanced the program to further highlight farm moms' efforts in their local communities and provide financial support to nonprofit organizations they care about."

A panel of judges from American Agri-Women will review nominations and help select five regional winners.

The five regional winners will be announced at the end of April, and each winner will receive $2,000 to direct to an eligible nonprofit organization of her choice, as well as $3,000 for her personal use. Profiles of the winners will then be posted to AmericasFarmers.com, where the public can vote for one national farm mom winner. Announced just prior to Mother's Day, the national winner will receive an additional $2,000 cash prize above and beyond her regional prize.
