ASI Award Nominations Due Nov. 14
October 28, 2016

Just over two weeks remain for you to recognize those who have provided outstanding service to the sheep industry by nominating them for an industry award. Nov. 14 marks the deadline for the submission of nominations to the annual American Sheep Industry Association awards program. Awards will be presented at the ASI Convention, Jan. 25-28, 2017, in Denver.

Four award categories are available for nomination:
  • the McClure Silver Ram Award is dedicated to volunteer commitment and service and is presented to a sheep producer who has made substantial contributions to the sheep industry and its organizations in his/her state, region or nation;
  • the Camptender Award recognizes industry contributions from a professional in a position or field related to sheep production;
  • the Distinguished Producer Award, launched in 2014, is a way to recognize an individual who has had a significant long-term impact on the industry including involvement with the National Wool Growers Association or American Sheep Producers Council, the predecessor organizations to ASI; and
  • the Shepherd's Voice Award for Media recognizes outstanding year-long coverage of the sheep industry by either print or broadcast outlets.
