Woman of Year In Ag Nominations Due
TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agriculture Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
announced that nominations are being accepted for the 2004 "Woman of the
Year in Agriculture" award. The award, now in its 20th year, recognizes
women who have made outstanding contributions to Florida agriculture.
Those nominated for the award will be judged by a panel familiar with
Florida agriculture. The award will be presented in February at the
opening-day luncheon of the 2005 Florida State Fair in Tampa.
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, which sponsors
the event, has sent nomination forms to agricultural organizations around
the state. The deadline for submitting nominations to the Department is
November 1, 2004. Nominations remain active for two years; after that time
they must be resubmitted in order to be considered.
