IAITC Volunteer of the Year Award
As the end of the 2017-2018 program year draws to a close, many of you are planning the county's MAPS reports to submit to IFB for award recognition. Please consider submitting a nomination for the 2018 IAITC Volunteer of the Year Award.
Nominations for the award are due by 4:00 PM on September 14, 2018. The "Volunteer" award is presented to county volunteer members who have done an outstanding job with Agriculture in the Classroom and ag literacy efforts. This award is not for paid AITC Coordinators or paid Ag Literacy Coordinators.
Your nomination form should detail the volunteer's contributions including:
brief introduction of your nominee
activities and/or programs carried out
age group of audience targeted
number of students reached by efforts
program or activity's message to audience
number of years nominee has been active with AITC efforts
All nominations are judged on outstanding leadership and commitment in teaching school children about the importance of agriculture in our lives. The award will be presented at the IAA Annual Meeting in December. Since this award program began in 1983, 91 individuals have been recognized for their contribution to the ag literacy effort. Why not add one from your county this year?
Please upload three photots of the nominee (preferably more than one head shot).
If you have any questions, please call 309-557-3334.
