There is still ample time to submit your nomination for the American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) Annual Awards Program. Nov. 18 marks the deadline for the submission of nominations. This program offers a great opportunity to recognize those individuals who have exhibited exceptional commitment and dedication to the sheep industry.
There are four award categories 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 Environmental Stewardship Award recognizes individuals actively involved in sheep production that have shown an extraordinary commitment to caring for natural resources and thereby enhancing the environment.
- The Shepherd's Award for Media recognizes outstanding yearlong coverage of the sheep industry in either print or broadcast.
Nominations must be postmarked by Nov. 18 and past award recipients are not eligible. Awards will be presented at the ASI Convention, Jan. 25-28, 2012, in Scottsdale, Ariz. Additional information is available at www.sheepusa.org.
