KDA Seeks Nominations for Kansas Ag Heroes

Kansas Department of AgThe Kansas Department of Agriculture is excited to announce they are now accepting nominations for the first ever Kansas Agriculture Heroes Program.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kansas farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses have performed essential functions to keep food on the tables of people worldwide. KDA established this program as a way to recognize those in the agriculture industry who went above and beyond to serve others and better their community when it was needed most.

KDA encourages Kansans to nominate any individual, family or business in Kansas agriculture which you feel provided a notable contribution to the agriculture industry or their community as a whole this year. Nominations will be accepted through August 10. The nomination instructions can be found at agriculture.ks.gov/AgHeroes.

KDA leadership will review each nomination and will recognize a select number of agriculture heroes virtually during the Kansas Summit on Agricultural Growth webinar on August 20. The recognition ceremony will be recorded and posted online at a later date.
